Thomas was married about 1676 to Christian Lemuel, only child of William Lemuel and Jane. Thomas and Christian had two children. William Lemuel died in 1683 and named his daughter Christian Flint in his will. Christian died soon after her father's will was proven and Thomas remarried to a woman named Anne and had three more children.
In 1681 Peter Flynt, acting on behalf of himself and his brother Thomas took the executors of their father's will to court because they had not been given their shares of the inheritance. In March of 1684 Thomas Hobson and Peter Presley were discharged as executors and a sum of 10,886 pounds of tobacco in cask was ordered to be divided between Thomas, Peter and their older brother Richard.
Thomas appears to have died without a will. On April 4th, 1694 Anne Flynt was granted administration of the estate of her husband. She also petitioned to remain in charge of Edward Lewis a young man being raised by the "charity" of Thomas Flynt. In February of 1701 Anne was arrested for failing to appear in court to respond to the claim by Jane, Thomas' daughter by his first marriage, that she had not received her share of her father's estate. Later that year a judge ordered Anne to pay Jane and her husband 7,615 pounds of tobacco and 44 shillings sterling silver.
