Thomas Bullitt (c.1734-1782) was an United States soldier and pioneer from Prince William County, Virginia.

Thomas was born to Benjamin and Sarah (Harrison) Bullitt about 1734 in Prince William County of Virginia. He became active in the militia when young, and became interested in western exploration and development. By 1754 he was a Captain in the County's militia, and participated in a number of attempts to secure western Virginia and Pennsylvania from the French.

Records of Thomas Bullitt in Augusta County, VA

From Chalkley’s Augusta County Records:


  • Page 147.--21st November, 1766. Thomas Bullett, of Fauquier County, of 1st part; Thomas and Andrew Lewis, of 2nd part. The parties had taken up 300 acres including the Little Warm Springs, and entered into agreement in regard to a division thereof and managament. This is a deed of partition. Delivered: Hon. Cuthbert Bullitt. 10th September, 1789.
  • Vol. 2 - Trigg and wife vs. Reuben Slaughter--O. S. 357; N. S. 129--Bill, 6th August, 1808, by Clement Trigg and wife Sarah. On 17th of September, 1775, Thomas Bullett made his will, devising to Sarah, then infant, land on Kenawha. Orator and oratrix moved to the land and found it claimed by defendant. The remainder of the tract was devised to Cuthbert Bullitt, who is dead. On 24th October, 1805, Barbara Bullitt and Susannah Redd certified that they believed Sarah Trigg to be the natural daughter of Col. Thos. Bullitt on Martha Bronsant. Will of Thomas Bullitt of Fauquier. Brother, Joseph Bullitt; devisee, Sarah Bronauant, daughter of Martha Bronaunt; sister, Seth Combs; legatee, Benj. Harrison. Ditto Cuthbert Combs. Brother, Cuthbert Bullitt. Dated 17th September, 1775. Proved in Fauquier, 23d February, 1778. (Note: Sarah Trigg appears to be the illegitimate daughter of Thomas Bullitt and Martha Bronaugh (Bronsant, Bronaunt), based upon the record above. Since Sarah took her mother's surname, this was a fairly common practice when the child was not from married parents).
