Notes on Thomas Kincaid

Kincaid History, by Richard Bradley (e-mail:

Thomas Kincaid of Augusta County

Thomas Kincaid (1704-1750) came from Carlisle, Cumberland Co., Pennsylvania to Augusta County, Virginia in 1747 where he purchased 263 acres on the Calfpasture River. This land joined 520 acres which David and John (son of David) Kincaid had purchased in 1764. Thomas died an intestate in 1750 leaving a widow Margaret (Lockhart) Kincaid and at least one child. Court records document that he had a son named William Kincaid but there is no documentation for other children. Some researchers have suggested that our Thomas Kincaid was a probable son of the above Thomas and Margaret Kincaid but this does not appear to be correct. Larry Shuck, in his book Our Families, places the Thomas Kincaid who came to Augusta County in 1747 as a brother to the immigrant David Kincaid. The following are three different lineages proposed by researchers for the Thomas Kincaid who married Margaret Lockhart:

I. Samuel Kincade = Eliz. Stone

He, born 1687, she 1686 in Devonshire, Scot.; married 1704; Eliz. died in OH or VA*5


II. James Kincaid = ______ Of Scotland, son of James, Laird of-that-ilk*4


III. Robert Kincaid = Eliz. North

He, 1686-1760.Father Joseph Kincaid went to near Dublin, Ireland in 1701. Robert married married Eliz. In 1705. *6

A son of one of the above lineages:

Thomas Kincaid = Margaret Lockhart*7

B. 1704-1705 d. 1750, Came from Carlisle, Cumberland Co., PA*8 to Augusta Co., VA in 1747.

The children and probable children of Thomas and Margaret Kincaid, according to Larry Shuck, were William, Thomas, John and Andrew. According to Doug McGuire, there were two William Kincaids in Augusta County, one who married Eleanor Guy and whose children were the victims of a famous Indian abduction which has been written about extensively. The other William, according to Doug McGuire was William the Stiller *8a who remained in Augusta County while the other William went to Woodford County, Kentucky. There is documentation that a William was the son of Thomas Kincaid and Margaret Lockhart. It is the information about his brothers and sisters which seems to be as much speculation as fact. Doug McGuire has provided me with information on his research in which he traces another Thomas Kincaid, Jr., the one married to Isabella, as the son of Thomas Kincaid and Margaret Lockhart. This Thomas Kincaid, Jr. was referred to as a Blacksmith in deeds in mid 1770's. He and his brother, William Kincaid, the Stiller, owned land on the Calfpasture River. Thomas was born about 1741, according to Doug McGuire, and the children of Thomas & Isabella were Elizabeth, Andrew, Thomas,
