Thoma Polhill [Thomas Polhill]
Residence: Clapham, Surrey, England
Probate Date: 13 Feb 1682
Death Year: Abt 1682

Will - Thomas Polhill of Clapham, Surrey
Written - 20 December 1682
Mentions:
Wife Elizabeth
Eight children: John, David, Thomas, Henry, Charles, Elizabeth, Jane and Bridgett
Brothers Robert Polhill and wife, Edward Polhill and wife
Cousins(nephews and neice) Thomas Polhill, David Polhill and Margaret Polhill the sons and daughter of brother Robert Polhill
Cousin (nephew) Thomas Polhill son of brother Edward polhill
Brothers (-in-law on his side) George Petty (Anne's husband), Henley (George - Jane's husband), Miller (Nicholas -  Margaret's husband)
Brothers (-in-law on Elizabeth's side) Bendish?, Henry Ireton, Cromwell Slootwood?, Gatar?,
Kinsmen Ralph Petty Esq., Thomas Stoatfeild, Charles Fleetwood, Henry Cromwell, John Ireton, John Hartopp.


Thomas lived in Clapham, Surrey, where later generations of the senior line also settled down. On succeeding to the inheritance he moved to Otford and sold Chipstead House and three hundred acres of its land to Sir Nicholas Strode, but retaining the remainder of the Place. Emboldened perhaps by the unexpected improvement in his fortunes he pressed his suit with Elizabeth, daughter and coheir to Henry Ireton, (Lord Lieut, of Ireland) by Bridget, daughter of Oliver Cromwell. The Ireton family came from Attenhorough in Hottinghamshire.
The union of a gentlemen of Kent with the daughter of such a pronounced Parliamentarian as Henry Ireton so soon after the subjugation of the county and the sack of Maidstone by General Fairfax, another of Cromwell's men, is inexplicable on normal grounds. Perhaps Thomas and Elizabeth were drawn towards each other by personal acquaintance at Otford or Clapham, and Cupid overrode all political feelings. Their union reflects the relief felt in the county on the death of Cromwell, and shown by the action of "all the people of Kent flocking to Dover in 1660 to greet King Charles II. It was held that not only the King but the old families and county gentry were restored". Be that it may, Elizabeth and Thomas were married in 1666 and the blood of the Independents, Cromwell and Ireton, mingled with that of the country gentry in the Polhills and the children that followed.

There were five sons and two daughters, but only three sons survived youth. Henry (1677-1753) died unmarried.
