Family History :  
Family Genealogy : Thomas Martin is also mentioned with John Lutes in the same Minutes of the Land Board meeting at Niagara 22 Feb 1791 (3rd Report of the Bureau of Archives). He is believed to be the son in law of John Lutes. Thomas Martin petitioned for land in 1786 on behalf of his wife Barbara, the sister of Conrad, both descended from the same Loyalist. That land was granted in Delaware Township. Their eldest son, James Martin, later successfully petitioned to have his mother's land re-issued in his name in 1835, his parents having died intestate. Thomas Martin's grandson, William married Permulia / Pamelia Millard, grand daughter of Loyalist Isaiah MILLARD, son of Loyalist Thomas MILLARD (both of Butler's Rangers).
