On Sep 24 1662, Thomas Bloyce received headights to 50a of land in Somerset County each for coming to Maryland to settle for himself, his wife Frances and daughters Judith and Frances and for John Painter and Emanuel Porting. Also, apparently for Mary Williams, Manniwell Deas and Richard Partridge. (See Torrence, "Old Somerset")
This is likely the Thomas Bloyes who sold land in tract N115 in Northampton Co., VA in 1664 to Thomas Marshall and who was also assigned tract A14 by William/Winifred Thorne in 1663 (See Whitelaw). Thomas Bloyce was the overseer of the will of William Boston in 1664 In Somerset (Torrence).
