  • Notes 
    • Thomas served as justice of Henrico (1678), sheriff (1680, 1688),coroner (1680), and Burgess (1677).

      Connie Lapallo notes his spouse as Margaret Powell and notes that she was the mother of William. This could be a composite of the two spouses or just a different name. She also notes Thomas death as 1697.

      The Genealogy of the Cocke Family in Virginia source shows that he died 1696, page 106.

      It appears that he lived at "Malvern Hills," (His father had lived at Bremo (probably an Indian name), which his brother, Richard, inherited.)
