Thomas is not named in any record. We assume that he or the first immigrant had at least one son :

2. Henry, Senior, b probably 1625 in England, d probably before 1700 in Charles City County, Virginia. "Henry Ledbetter ordered to pay Mr. Jno. Cogan 816 lbs. tobo," as shown in Vol. 11, page’ 217, Order Book Charles City County, Virginia. Virginia. Virginia Colonial Abstracts by Beverly Fleet, 1941.

On 29 Apr 1668, as shown in Patent Book Vol 6, page 134 in the Land Office (now Archives), Richmond, Virginia, patent issued by Sir William Berkeley to Henry 224 acres of land in Charles City County (Prince George County after 1702) at place called Bristol, of which the present Petersburg is the approximate location. The patent recited that 125 acres had been sold to Henry's father, unnamed, and the date not stated. On 29 Oct 1668 a patent was issued to Robert Coleman for 283 acres recited as adjoining Henry Ledbetter, Patent Book Charles City County, Vol 6, p 189, and William and Mary Quarterly number 13.

Under date of Oct 1673, "Judgment to Mary Ledbetter against Tho. Walton for 1000 lb tab for accomodation cloathing and levys expended plus debt," Vol 12 Court Orders, Charles City County page 549 original. Mary was likely the widowed mother of Henry.

Under date of 15 Aug 1678 Fragments of Court Order Book, Charles City County, p 318 by Ann B. Peebles (unpublished), "Wm. Range, dec'd, left to the use of Henry Ledbeater one mare filly which by Roger Rice delivered to said Henry, and prays the same be recorded. Mr. John Sturdevant desired to see the same branded for use of said Henry."

Under date of 12 Feb 1716, Court Order Book Prince George County, p 105 by Ann B. Peebles (unpublished ), "Hugh Lee, Sr, exhibited a judgment of 12 Feb 1716, and desired it recorded and execution issued thereon against Henry Ledbetter and John his son, and they ordered to pay said Lee-and 5 S, costs of execution." This probably meant that Henry was dead and that was the reason for issuing execution against his son John. It will be noted that in Charles City Patent Book 7,-387, the patent of 548.32 acres to Francis Ledbetter recited "adjoining Hugh Lee's land."
