Thomas Roberds
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1700, Wales
Death: 1773
Philadelphia County
Pennsylvania, USA

This Thomas Roberds is the earliest known Roberds. He married a Sarah Gilbert and they had three sons, Freeman (1730), Walter (1734) and John (1740). Thomas married and died in Philadelphia.

Thomas evidently was not a Quaker, although he signed the marriage certificates of some of his children. He may be the Thomas Roberds named on the first plat of survey for Milford Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, 1734-Sep or Oct. (reference: "Bucks County Pioneers of the 18th Century", pg. 106, by William H. Davis, 1903.)

When his son John was married 1764-12mo-14, he was shown as of Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. A Thomas Roberds is buried at Merion and is listed as a Revolutionary War veteran. There are records of other Thomas Roberd(t)s who were immigrants in the early 1700's, or who otherwise made themselves known, including one runaway servant of 1720.
