About us

After extensive research and the publishing of several family genealogy books that resulted in conflicting conclusions, the families involved were at a standstill. No firm conclusion could be reached as to exactly who was a member of the Thames biological family. Was Timms/Tims and Timbs a variant spelling of Thames? Was Amos Tims b. 1684 the father of Thomas Thames d. 1758?

No firm conclusion could be reached as to the exact genealogical lines emanating from Thomas Thames born about 1705/10. Did three of his sons Thomas, John and or Amos go to South Carolina between the years 1764 and 1770? Are the Thames families of South Carolina the descendants of Thomas Thames? Who is the progenitor of the Thames family found today through out the U.S.A.? Is Amos Tims of record in Colonial Virginia the proginator? Was there a Thames in the Colonies before Thomas Thames?
