They were indentured servants on the John Day plantation in Glouchester County Va. for 5-7 years. He was a cooper. Their four children and listed elsewhere. He would have been 12 years old in 1642, therefore, the Thomas who arrived then may have been his father. The father may have returned to Ireland or passed away because he isn't listed after 1653.
