From "The Ivy Family 1635 - 1984 in Virginia, Georgia, and Mississippi, by Robert Adams Ivy. Found at DAR Library, Washington, DC.: : James Thelaball, Frenchman and Hugenot, was born in France and was in Virginia as early as 1637. He imported Alex Massie in that year. He was spoken of at the time as "a rich and prominent French emigrant." He imported 19 persons in 1651. His naturalization papers were taken out and recorded in the courthouse in Portsmouth, Virignia. His old plantation is now the site of Norfolk City Park. He was church warden of Lower Norfolk County in 1659 and 1660.


James married Elizabeth Mason, daughter of Francis Mason and Alice Gayney, in 1637 in Virginia. (Elizabeth Mason was born about 1610 in Elizabeth City, Norfolk, Virginia and died before Sep 5, 1693 in Norfolk County, Virginia.)
