    Member of Oldcastle MM in East Meath. A deed to his first property, purchased in Ireland from Ebenezer Pike of Cork, was dated Jan. 19, 1715, and was recorded in the Philadelphia deeds. The land was in Chester Co., located now across US Rt. 1 from Kennett Square, PA. This land was composed of 500 acres and reaches 1.6 north to Willowdale. Originally the land was part of the grant to William Penn and was sold to Joseph Pike on Oct. 21, 1701, and then to his brother Ebenezer Pike on Mar. 9, 1714. The Pikes may have been related to Thomas since their mother was Elizabeth Jackson before she married their father Richard Pike. Elizabeth was born in London in 1636 into a prominent family, "some of her connexions having been chief magistrates of that city."

    The dominate industry of Ireland at that time was linen production, and Thomas was a linen draper. He was widowed in N. Ireland by the death of his first wife Mary Starkey. He came to Pennsylvania in 1717 and was received at Newark/Kennett MM on 7 Dec 1717 from Old Castle MM, County Meath. He was married a second timeon 25 Dec, 1718, at New Garden Meeting, to Mary Wiley of New Garden, probably a step-daughter of Thomas Lightfoot. The ceremony is described in the Quaker minutes as follows:
