Thomas BABB was on 9 Oct. He was born in 1697 in Brandywine Hundred, New Castle, Delaware. He died on 4 Oct 1760 in Frederick County, Virginia. Not long after his marriage there was a movement of Quakers from Pennsylvania to Frederick County, Virginia. Thomas went with these Quakers and was one of the founding fathers of the Hopewell Monthly Meeting north of Winchester in Frederick County . This was in 1734.

His father had a land grant of 600 acres on Apple Pie Ridge, near Babb's Run, northwest of Winchester. Thomas settled there and was joined by his brother, Phillip. At his father's death they inherited this land.

Thomas died 11/04/1760. His will was proved 11/04/1760. He left the home place to his son, Sampson, and other bequest to his other children. His wife, not being mentioned, is believed to have already died.

The first lovely old home belonging to Thomas was called "The Great Marsh Plantation", now known as The Babb-Purcell-Janney House. It dates to 1735. Great Marsh is located on the north side of route 673 between route 522 and the Apple Pie Ridge Road in Frederick, Virginia.

The second home named "The Brick House" is a lovely old brick mansion and dates also to 1735. It is located west of the Apple Pie Ridge Road and south of route 672 on Babb's Run. This is also in Frederick, Virginia.

He was married to Sarah FOULK (daughter of  William and Elizabeth (Cope) Foulk) on 26 Jun 1729 in Wilmington Delaware. Sarah FOULK was born about 1708 in Bethel Twp, Chester Penn. She died in 1764 in Frederick County, Virginia.

The Babb - Purcell - Janney House

No. 5

The Great Marsh Plantation

Location: on the north side of Route 673 between Route 522 and Apple Pie Ridge Road

This house, plaster-covered over weatherboards and undoubtedly in its oldest parts of log construction, is now the attractive home of Mr. and Mrs. Dawson Bageant. It is our judgement that at least part of the structure was once the home of Thomas Babb, located on land granted to him by patent on April 23, 1735, when the area was a part of Orange County. This was Thomas Babb I, who conveyed the property to Philil Babb on April 7, 1762, (F,D. B. 32 - page 260) In his will, proved April 7, 1862, Philip Babb devised to his wife the plantation “Called the Great Marsh” for life and at her death to her son, Thomas Babb II. F.W.B. 3 - page 42).
