His last wife was Anne, daughter of Henry Fox, of King William County; and his wife Anne, daughter of Col. John West (nephew of Lord Delaware.)

At the same place is the tomb of his last wife:
      "Here also lies the body of Mrs. Ann Claiborne late wife of Capt. Thomas Claiborne, Daughter of Mr. Henry Fox - born ye 20th day of May 1684. She departed this life ye 4th day of May 1733; Aged 48 years, 10 Months & 17 days."
