He was Sheriff in 1701 and a member of the House of Burgesses from 1702-1706. He owned 700 acres in Princess Anne County in 1704. Adam sat as Justice October 7, 1708. Princess Anne Co. Deeds & Wills Book 3, p. 143 mentions five children of Adam and Mary; on p. 175 of the same book, division of Negroes was among three children; p. 504 indicates these children as Francis, Margaret and John on July 3, 1723. By April 6, 1726, son John is described as "only surviving son in Princess Anne Co. Deed Book 4, p. 60. (Meyers & Dorman, Adventurers of Purse & Person, p. 618)

Adam Thorowgood(III)(Lt. Col.) and Mary Sayer had the following children:

child 111 i. Margaret5 Thorowgood. Margaret died after 1723. She was not married in 1723. John Harvie Creecy's chart shows she had at least two sisters who are unidentified.

child + 112 ii. John Thorowgood.

child 113 iii. Francis Thorowgood. Francis died before 1726. Purse & Person shows that Francis, son of Adam and Mary, died by 1726, when his brother, John, was called "only surviving son of Adam Thorowgood." Mr. Creecy's chart shows Francis, son of Adam and Mary, as marrying Amy Lovett and living until 1740. Purse & Person shows the Francis who married Amy Lovett was the son of Francis Thorowgood & Ann Brittingham.

Various entries in Deeds & Wills of Princess Anne Co., VA indicate that Francis, son of Adam and Mary, did not marry nor have children and that he apparently died before April 6, 1726. (Meyers & Dorman, Adventurers of Purse & Person, p. 618)
