      From Hanson Genealogy Record, 1988: THOMAS ESTEP, SR., owned "Valleys and Hills, Tom and Wills" in Frederick Co, Md. Born before 1713, took oath in court in 1734 (A.A. Co. 9-127). Died abt 1772, he is on 1772 tax list and not later - Thomas, Jr. sold his land in 1772.
      Thomas is possibly son of Immigrant Richard or Joseph.
      Thomas Estep, Sr. is probably a grandson of the immigrant, Richard Estep. Thomas probably had a brother, William, with whom he owned the land, "Toms and Wills, Virginialleys and Hills". Before this, Thomas owned "Chinkapin Forest" (which was purchased on 9 Mar 1746 for 3600 pounds of tobacco; source Scott Filly, San Francisco, CA via GenServ System (fillse1)).
      There may be other children of this family but they have not been found. Thomas and Shadrach moved to North Carolina as given and William is the William of Frederick Co, Md. and Huntington Co, Virginia. John is probably the John who took the oath of allegiance in North Carolina. Mary is not found.
