Elected as the first justice of the new county of Cumberland in 1749 and was Burgess from Cumberland 1765-1771, along with Thomas Jefferson.
Known as Alex Trent of "Barterhill", Cumberland County on Willis River, and Manchester.
Alexander Trent, III apparently had a mistress, Ann Major Tinsley (wife of John Tinsley, of Chesterfield To., who advertised in 1777 that she had "eloped" and that he would not be responsible for her debts). To Ann, Mr. Trent left a lot in the town of Manchester, to be sold at her death, and the proceeds distributed to his "children by her".
