    Thomas Tinsley arrived in Virginia about 1638 and built his house on the Totopatomoy Creek in New Kent County, twelve miles north of the present-day city of Richmond. This part of Kent County later became a part of Hanover County. His first patent was for 300 acres of land on the west side of the Chickahominy River, dated Dec. 13, 1650. Bible records show a grant of land to him by the Crown of England dated Oct. 25, 1689. The old home place remains in the Tinsley family and is now called Totomoi, located near Oakland, Virginia. Virginia histories credit him with being a man of high esteem, great influence, and courage.

    This book details what is known about his life in Colonial Virginia and traces many of his descendants to the early 1900s.
