Thomas married Anne Gregory, daughter of John Gregory, Feb. 2, 1666, in Rappahannock County. John Gregory made a deed April 16, 1666, to his son-in-law Thomas Edmundson of Rappahannock County (Va. Hist. Mag., Vol. 5, p. 162; Deed Book 3, p. 1744-5). Gregory was a member of the Farnh am Parish Vestry. The deed reads:

“Bee it knowne unto all men by these presents that I Jno. Gregory of Hos kins Creek in the County of Rappa. Planter out of and for the Love and aff ection I have for Thomas Edmundson of same county Planter my Sone in Law a nd for the Better prefermt.

John Gregory’s will is recorded in Deeds a nd Wills, Old Rappahannock County, 1665-1667, pp. 210-211: the will of Capt. John Grigorys was dated May 24, 1676, who was still living.
REGISTER OF ANCESTORS, National Society of Colonial Dames of Commonwealth of Virginia, p. 41, refers to John Gregory, d. 1676. Capt., ranger, old Rappa hannock County. Bacon Rebellion. Marriage 1 to Elizabeth Bishop, b. 16 25 in Virginia and died before 1676 in Rappahannock County. Married abo ut 1653 in Lancaster County, Virginia. Children: Ann Gregory, b. Lancast er County, married Thomas Edmundson; Mary Gregory, b. 1665 in New Kent Cou nty; John Gregory, Jr., b. 1667; Richard Gregory, b. abt 1668 in Lancast er County; Elizabeth Gregory b. in Farnham Parish, Virginia. (It would appear that this Register is not correct in date of marriage of John and Eli zabeth Gregory. Their daughter Ann who married Thomas Edmundson likely wo uld have been born before 1653 to be old enough to be married by 1666 .) See COLONIAL SURRY, p.102, for reference to John Gregory.

VIRGINIA TAX RECORDS, pub. by Gen. Publishing Co., 1983, p. 239: John Greg ory was doubtless the person of the name who afterwards lived in Rappahan nock County. John Gregory of Rappahannock, made a deed dated April 16, 16 66, to his son-in-law Thos. Edmondson. Robt. Bishop, of Rappahannoc k, by will dated April 21st, 1776, left all his estate to John Gregory, Jr. John Gregory, the elder, who was a vestryman of Sittenhouse parish, 1 665, had two sons, John and Richard, and a daughter Mary, who married in 1 682, James Taylor, the immigrant ancestor of President Taylor. There was a grant in April, 1687, to James Taylor, for land left by Mr. Robt. Bishop, to John Gregory and by him to his sister Mary, “now the wife” of the said Taylor.

There is on record a deed from John Gregory and Elizabe th his wife, of Rappahannock, date Feb. 26, 1673-4. The will of John Gregory was dated Dec. 18, 1671, and proved in Rappahannock, Sept. 4, 1678 .; legatees, his sisters, Mary and Elizabeth, brother Richard, Executor. The will of Richard Gregory of Essex, was dated Feb. 17, and proved M ay 10, 1700. Richard and John, sons-in-law (probably step-sons) Thomas and Wm. Bowin, daughter Elizabeth, and wife Katherine.

Speaks of his land in King and Queen County. Either this Richard or his s on of the same name was J.P. for King and Queen, 1693, 1699, 1702. Of cou rse after 1700, the justice must have been the son. (This account gives to her Gregory family history in later generations. )
