William was a son of Francis and Alice (Savage) Thornton and twin of Sarah (Thornton) Taliaferro. He was born presumably on his father's plantation in "Old" Rappahannock Co., Virginia.[Biographies of his parents linked to this one contain erroneous information.]

Around 1705, William married the widow Frances Bernard.

He died probably in early 1743; his will was recorded in King George County and probated in March. His heirs were few: his only son William, his widow Frances, and his young grandchildren, Frances and William Robinson. (Bio by Mark Hale)
