Thomas Gatewood was born in Old Rappahannock County in 1683. He was the son of English immigrants, John Gatewood and Amy McGraw. When John Gatewood died in 1706 he left to Thomas "150 acres, part of land that I formerly bought of Capt. Richard. Haile, now deceased, being also part of 5000 acres Which did formerly belong unto Col. Thomas Goodrich, Mr. Henry Aubrey and. Maj George Morriceall, deceased."

Thomas married Elizabeth Dudley on July 16th, 1716. They had at least nine children that were all named in Thomas' will.

Thomas wrote his will on December 3rd, 1748. The will was proven in court the following March. In the will Thomas referred to himself as being sick and weak of body but of perfect mind and memory. He left all of his land to his son Thomas. Thomas also left payment for his son Joseph to receive an education. He left to his daughters Elizabeth Haile and Amey Saint John each ten pounds. Thomas ordered that the remainder of his estate be divided among his youngest children; Ambrose, Robert, John, Sarah, Rachel and Joseph. Thomas was able to write well enough to sign his own will.

A inventory of the Estate of Thomas Gatewood listed many heads of livestock, lots of furniture and household items plus a parcel of books including a bible. The inventory also listed the names of five slaves; Harper, Sam, Mingo, Bek and Bader.
