      The first Jordan to be born on this continent was Thomas Jordan who wa s born July 7, 1635.

      Thomas was quite a free thinker, and was the first of a number of Jord ans that broke from the path that they had been set  upon by their for bearers. It can be said that lust was probably the cause of his strayi ng as he married the 18 year old Quaker  Margaret Brashare in 1659 o r 1660. She was a very strong willed young woman who had become a Quak er in 1658. Apparent  she thoroughly warped Thomas around her finger , luring him away from the religion of his father and setting him o n a path  that was very different in almost every way from that of hi s contemporaries.

      THOMAS JORDAN married MARGARET BRASSIER March 23, 1658 in Isle of Wigh t Co., VA,  daughter of ROBERT BRASSIEUR and FLORENCE. She was born Ju ly 1642 in  Nansemond Co., VA, and died October 07, 1708 in Nansemon d Co., VA.

They were fined  repeatedly for non payment o f Priest's Dues )  He was a Burgess of  Nansemond Co., VA  He had te n sons, some of whom became Quaker ministers, and two daughters. All h is children were born in Nansemond County, Virginia.  The conversio n of Thomas to Quakerism was to influence the family for many years. B ecause of his connections back in England he was able to give the Virg inia Quakers some  protection from the Puritan authorities who were su pported by his father. Thomas was also somewhat of a martyr that suffe red for his beliefs.  In Sept 1664 he was imprisoned for six months f or holding a Quaker meeting at his own home. Released by the king's pr oclamation, he was taken again and bound over to the  court. He refuse d to swear and was sent to Jamestown as a prisoner for ten months. Th e sheriff confiscated some of his servants, cattle, and household effe cts, which were  valued at the time at 9,000 pounds of tobacco.

In Sept 1664 he wa s imprisoned for six months for holding a Quaker meeting at his own ho me. Released by the king's proclamation, he was taken again and boun d over to the court.

      Thomas Jordan the "Quaker" # 2

      From "Quaker Genealogy - Virginia" by Hinshaw the following is writte n concerning Thomas and Margaret.
      "We would also speak especially of Thomas Jordan of Chuckatuck and hi s wife; Margaret Brashare. The latter is one of the first known conver t to Quackerism in the Virginia Colony, for her son says sshe becam e a Quackeress when she was about sixteen in the year 1658. Her husban d, Thomas Jordan, was probably influnced by her example for the recor d says that "in ye yeare 1660 hee received ye truth and Abode faithfu l in it". This conversion came shortly after his marriage. They becam e the parents of ten sons and the forebearers of a large and distingui shed family, many of whom were most servicible to the Society as leade rs and ministers. Thomas Jordan was probably the most influencial Quak er of lower Virginia being a man of position and substance. But in spi te of this he suffered greatly for his faith. He lists these trials i n a paper found in the Chuckatuck record. He says:

      Thomas Jordan the "Quaker" # 4

      I give this account in full not only of Thomas Jordan's personal sacri fices but also as an illustration of the types of persecution these ea rly Quakers underwent in this country. Thomas Jordan was unusual onl y in that he was among those who were freed from prison by the King' s command. His wife suffered with him, for one of the ten sons says o f his mother, "shee lived an exemplary life . . . until the day of he r death and she was a sufferer with my father both by Confinment & als oe the spoiling of their Goods by the Adversaries of Truth (and) for t he excercise of their conscience in the worship of God".

      Thomas Jordan the "Quaker" # 5

      The fact that Thomas was freed from prison by the kings command is a n indication that the Jordans still had influence back in England. I t was also likely due to the influence of his father and the fact tha t the Jordans owned quite a bit of property in Nansemond county. It sh ould also be remembered that Thomas was also very talented, and one o f the few educated people in the colony. It is very likely that he ha d been sent to England to be educated and could have had his own influ ential friends that would have aided him with the king.

      The fact that Thomas was fairly well educated is illustrated by the fo llowing which was written by Thomas Jordan in 1678 and involves some s ort of rebellion in the Quaker ranks that he felt had gotten out of ha nd. From this short piece it can be seen that Thomas had a way with wo rds, had an excellent vocabulary, and was capable of poetry. We also g et the idea that he was a good and through thinker and had an inordina te ability to come to appropriate conclusions. Try reading the followi ng several times and I think you will see that it is quite nice. The f ollowing is from The Valentine Papers.

      In a somewhat lighter vain, the following letter from Thomas to the Qu akers in London in 1697, two years before his death is recorded from t he William and Mary Quarterly. This was written after the perecution o f the Quakers had eased in the colony, and Thomas had been elected t o the House of Burgess for Namsemond County, being the third Jordan t o belong to the House of Burgess.

      Thomas was not the last Jordan to be good with words as is demonstrate d by the following written by Joseph Jordan, a great grandson of Thoma s on the occasion of his freeing his slaves. I feel certain that Josep h had been to law school. The following is from "Southern Quakers an d Slavery"

      "I Joseph Jordan of Northhamton County in North Carolina from mature d eliberate consideration and the convictions of my own mind being full y persuaded that freedom is the natural right of all mankind, and tha t no law moral nor devine has given me a just right to or property i n the persons of any of my fellow creatures, and being desirous to ful fill the injunction of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, by doing t o others as I would be done by,

      While Thomas was a good person, probably the greatest influence for th e family came from Margaret, who must have been a very strong woman. S he was extremely well thought of in the colony and by her family. Th e following is from "The Valentine Papers" and is the testimony of Ben jamin Jordan concerning his mothers death.

      Thomas Jordan was probably the most influential Quaker in lower Virgin ia

      Hinshaw's ENCYCLOPEDIA OF AMERICAN QUAKER GENEALOGY notes, "Thomas Jor dan was probably the most influential Quaker in lower Virginia bein g a man of position and substance."
      In 1661, he was held, as he writes, "in six weeks imprisonment for bei ng taken at a meeting at my own house and released by the King's procl amation." The latter royal intervention speaks of the influence of th e Jordan family in both Virginia and in England.
      In the same year, Thomas Jordan also "suffered" the following abuses f or his Quaker beliefs: ". . . for being taken at a meeting at Robert L awrence's and bound over to the court of Nansemond for refusing to swe ar according to their wills and against the commands of Christ, was se nt up to Jamestown a prisoner for upwards of ten months. Presently Joh n Blake took away my three servants and left my wife in a distressed c ondition with a young child at her breast . . . which servant was kep t nine weeks and released by order of the Governor. There was taken b y John Blake, sheriff of Nansemond, two feather beds, two feather bols ters, and furniture which together with other goods amounted to 3,90 7 lbs. tobacco and also a serving man who had three years to serve. Th ere was taken by Thomas Godwin, sheriff, ten head of cattle amountin g to 5,507 lbs." This testimonial was signed, "Thomas Jordan, Chuckatu ck, 1st month, 1661."
