The Descendants of Thomas Lamkin

(Updated Databases) Permanent link

The Descendants of Thomas Lamkin of the Northern Neck of VirginiaThe newly updated database, The Descendants of Thomas Lamkin of the Northern Neck of Virginia, by Harold E. Wilkins, MD, edited by Barbara J. Mathews, C.G., is now available to search. 

Research into seventeenth-century court records of Virginia's Northern Neck led to the discovery of three individuals all named Thomas Lamkin (seemingly father, son, and grandson) residing near the head of the very short Yeocomico River, which empties into the Potomac River a short distance from the Chesapeake Bay. This unpublished finding led to the writing of The Descendants of Thomas Lamkin of the Northern Neck of Virginia, first published by the Newbury Street Press in 2001, which is devoted to the first six generations of this family. The author believes that perhaps ninety-five percent of people in the United States with this surname, regardless of spelling, could be traceable to Thomas Lamkin (c. 1620–1665) of Northumberland County, Virginia.
