Children of Thomas and Elizabeth (Griffin) Flewelling
  Not all that could be known of the children of Thomas and Elizabeth Flewelling has been found. Early genealogists rarely identified their sources, and their work is in the process of duplication in an attempt to verify their statements. Except for errors in terms of relationships, and some questions of dates, much of this early work has been substantiated. Even so, some of the following still requires work. Yet an attempt is made to give only what is known, or at least highly probable.
  One problem lies in determining the names of the three sons who died in the American Revolution. In addition to the above discussion of these sons, Jill Jamieson of Woodstock, Ontario notes on microfilm reel C-4223 in the Public Archives of Canada (Vol. 1902, pp. 41-69; Vol. 1903, pp. 10-64) a Thomas Fluellan and an Enos Fluellan in the King's American Regiment between the years 1779 and 1782. Since the first Sgt. Thomas Flewelling, Jr. died about 1778 (when his name was "left off"), presumably the Thomas mentioned between is the father, and since he appears to be attached to Col. Fanning’s Company (HQ staff?), and continuously off recruiting, this placement on the regimental rolls may have been to facilitate payment for his recruiting (if not other) activities. It also seems unlikely that someone who was a sergeant in 1778, and receiving the commendation of his colonel and superior officers, would be a private in later years.
  In his Loyalist claim, Thomas Flewelling mentions nine surviving children. Adding to this the three sons who died in the Revolution gives twelve children. The list, below, indicates fourteen children. I suspect that between the time of his arrival in SEP1783 with eleven children, and the time the claim was written in FEB1786 that two of these children, George and the second William, died. Perhaps in that first winter. It would appear, then, that Thomas and Elizabeth had at least fourteen children, one of whom, who died in the Revolution, has not been named.
  The children of Thomas and Elizabeth Flewelling appear to be:
