  • Notes 
    • Along with William John, Thomas in 1697 came ahead of the rest of the Welsh party and purchased Gwynedd twp from Robert Turner. Thus, the other settlers received deeds from him and John in 1699 for their land. He settled in 1698 on the land in today's Upper Gwynedd township just above Swedesford Road. His property extended from Swedesford Road to Prospect Ave (North Wales) and from the Whitpain to the Montgomery twp. lines. It was at his log home that William Penn stayed when he visited Gwynedd. A large eighteenth century stone house with a mansard roof stands today on Sumneytown Pike in Upper Gwynedd where his log home was (just southeast of the borough of North Wales). The part of the house facing the creek (Evans Run) was probably built by his son, and the other part of the L of this house was used as an inn built by the Heist family around the time of the Revolution.
