Col. Richard IV Thomas and Thomazin Downing Record of births of the children of Richard IV and Tomazin (Downing) Thomas. at Uwchlan Friends Meeting, Lionville, Uwchlan Township, Chester Co., Pennsylvania, USA.10 (an unknown value.)5 Col. Richard IV Thomas was per Cope [1901] p. 181: The Colonial records of Pennsylvania from 1774 until the close of the revolutionary War are replete with notices of the active services, both civil and military, of the 4th Richard thomas of Chester Country. He was a member of the frist association of the country formed to carry out the views and effect the purposes of the Continental Congress. In September, 1775, he was lieutenant-colonel of a regiment of volunteers, being the first regiment raised in Chester County. April 19, 1776, he was appointed colonel of the 5th battalion of Associators, in the county of Chester. The commission, dated that day, is signed "By order of the Assembly, John Morton, Speaker." Col. Thomas was a member of the Provincial Conference or Convention, composed of the county committees, which met June 18, 1776. This Conference appointed the Pennsylvania delegates who signed the Declaration of Independence; and also adopted measures for organizing six thousand militia, the number assigned to Pennsylvania by Congress as her quota of ten thousand militia, who were directed to form a flying camp for the middle colonies. Col. Thomas commanded the Chester County regiment of this flying camp in a campaign across New Jersey, as far as Amboy, for the protection of Philadelphia. His duties as a militia officer of Chester County in procuring and distributing arms and munitions of war, were of the most arduous and responsible character. His breach of some of the fundamental principles of Friends did not pass unnoticed by his fellow members.

Whereas Richard Thomas, who was Educated in Religious Profession with us the People
Called Quakers, yet for want of taking heed to the gift of Divine grace in his own heart, hath
been of late concerned in puting in Execution sundry things of a Public Nature which in their
tendancy are Repugnant to our principles & also hath further Deviated from our peaceable
Testimony against wars & fighting in accepting of the Command of a party of Men in learning
the Art of War, for which we have frequently laboured with him in Christian love in order to
Convince him of his Errors, which having not had the Desired Effect we therefore think it
necessary for the clearing of our Religious society to Declare to the World that we can no
longer Deem the said Richard Thomas to be a Member Thereof until from a true sight & sense
of his Errors he condemn the said Misconduct to the Satisfaction of this Meeting, which is our
desire for him. Signed by order of the said Meeting by
[Uwchlan Mo. Mtg., 8 mo. 10, 1775.] Thomas Lightfoot, Clk.

In September, 1777, the British sent a party to Col. Thomas's house in hopes of capturing him, but he being notified escaped. The enemy put a rope around his wife's neck and threatened to hang her to the lintel of the door if she did not tell where her husband was concealed. Thomzin D. Thomas, of Whitford Hall, with one exception the oldest living grandchild, tells of a similar incident.

Col. Thomas was with his troops near Lionville, in Uwchlan, when his family were startled by an alarm of the English soldiers in the immediate vicinity' of the house. They had previously been careful to conceal all the silver ware not needed for use, and the residue was hastily removed from the breakfast table and thrown into the bottom of an old tall clock. The marauders found it, however, and were provoked at not finding more, so they broke the case of the clock and injured the works to some extent. One of Col. Thomas's sisters remained in the house, and they tried to make her reveal the hiding place of the valuables, which she, like many of the women of that day, refused to do. In the old-time kitchen there were several strong wooden pegs or meat hooks, and one of iron. In order to make her tell the^' tied a rope around her neck and strung her up to one of the wooden pins, but she being a heavy person her weight broke them in succession. She was afraid they would notice the iron pin, which she knew would hold her, but fortunately they did not, and becoming tired or fearful of being surprised they desisted. The old clock was afterward repaired and is now one of the best time-keepers in the neighborhood.

In the years 1 786 to 1 789, inclusive. Col. Thomas was elected a member of Assembly, and in 1 790, to the State Senate. In April, 1793, he was appointed a brigadier-general of militia by Governor Mifflin, but declined to accept. In the years 1794, 1796 and 1798 he was elected a member of the Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Congresses, being the first representative from his native county under the Constitution of the United States.

Richard Thomas and his brother George inherited their father's lands, and in 1777 were assessed with 250 acres each, in West Whiteland, beside which Richard had a grist mill. As they had been "plundered by the enemy" they were excused from paying tax that year. It has been stated that at the outbreak of the rebellion Richard conveyed his land to his peaceable brother to prevent its confiscation in case the Americans were unsuccessful. The old mansion, which stood close by the present residence of his grandson, Richard Ashbridge, was accidentally burned in 1895. About 1782 he erected a new house on the Lancaster Road, of dark red brick, which was painted fifty or more years ago a drab or light brown. But little change has been made to the outside, while the interior has undergone considerable alteration, and under the name of Whitford Lodge it is used as a summer vacation house for women and girls from Philadelphia, It contains twenty-two or 'three desirable rooms. Richard Thomas died at the residence of his daughter, Thomazine Ashbridge, in Philadelphia. between 1774 and 1781.11

Col. Richard IV Thomas began military service between 1774 and 1794 at Whiteland Township, Chester Co., Pennsylvania, USA, From DAR Application #42533: "Col. of the Ffith Battalion of Chester County Associators."
     "Richard Thomas of Whiteland, Chester County, in the Province of Pennsylvania, the fourth of his name in direct dwescent in this county, was of Quaker Ancestry and belief."
     "As early as the latter part of the year 1774 as one of the Committtee of Observation for Chester County, he as chosen to organize the first battallion of Associators. During the following year he was selected as a delegate to the Provincial Conference and later to the Provincial Convention; he also appears on the records as a member of the Committee of Safety as the Colonel of the Fifth Battllion of Chester County Associators."
     "His service during the first years of the war consisted chiefly in perfecting the organization of the county associators and his various duties relative to the several Provincial committees upon which he was called to serve. His commission of Colonel of the Fifth Battalion being reserved in the Spring of 1777."
     "Colonel Thomas' active service consisted principally in commanding the Chester County Battaltion of teh "Flying Camp" in the campaign across New Jersey for the protection of Philadelphia."
     "After the war, Richard Thomas was elected a member of the assembly and in 1790 to the Senate of Pennsylvania. He declined the appointment of Brigadier General tendered him by Governor Mifflin and in 1794 was elected a member of the Fourth Congress of the United States, being the first representative from Chester County under the new constitution. He was also a member of the same body for the next two terms."
     "The record of the services of Richard Thomas during the War of Independence is fully set forth in the Archives of Pennsylvania and has been used by Nos. 9802, 9805 and 24332, amont others, in their applications for membership..."9

     Reference: (an unknown value.)6 He mentioned with Abraham Sharpless between 1810 and 1830; Abraham Sharples has a large number of young adults living in his household in the 1810, 1820 and 1830 censuses. His son, Robert, does not appear in separate listings in any of these years. It is likely that he and his wife Elizabeth (Downing) - married in May 1810, were living in his father's household during those years.
