He seems to have begun a career in the Royal Navy. Mr. Wykeham-Martin says that he died at Portsmouth, unmarried, in his twenty-second year; certainly, he is not referred to in the later family documents.

Biography* O.s.p.
.
He was baptised in Loose, September 26, 1725, as 'Denny the son of Mr. Denny Martin and Francis his wife;' matriculated at University College, Oxford, December 17, 1744, 'aged 19,' whence he proceeded B.A., 1748, and M.A., 1751 (Foster). Later, he was granted also the.degree of D. D. Taking orders, he was collated curate of Bromfield and was so serving in 1760 when Hasted (ii, 484) wrote his account of that parish: eventually he became also parson of Loose, and so remained until his death.
.
Under the will of the sixth Lord Fairfax he was vested in 1781 with Alexander Culpeper's undivided sixth in the Northern Neck proprietary as well as the 'manors' therein, which Lord Fairfax had reserved to his own use; upon condition that he should procure an act of Parliament changing his name to Fairfax. On August 10, 1782, he duly assumed that name by royal license (London Gazette, No. 12320, cited in Phillimore & Fry, Changes of Name, 1905) ; and, after the Jay treaty of September 1783 had been ratified with its provision assuring the protection of alien titles to lands in America, went out to Virginia to assert his claim to his inheritance. Virginia was, however, loath to recognise his claim and put him to his remedy. He thereupon retained John Marshall and in 1786 filed the caveats against Virginia patents for Northern Neck land (see in the Land Office at Richmond the book called Caveats No. 1, 1786-1814, pp. 51, 55, 56, 84, 86), which precipitated the litigation reported as Hunter v. Fairfax's devisee, 1 Munford (Va.), 218; 7 Cranch (U.S.), 603; 4 Munford (Va.), 3; 1 Wheaton (U.S.), 304. In 1793, on the death of Robert, Lord Fairfax, he succeeded also, under the entail of Catherine Culpeper's will, to the full proprietary title as well as to Leeds Castle; and then, being weary of the protracted and still undetermined litigation, sold out his claims in Virginia to John Marshall, James M. Marshall and Raleigh Colston for £20,000. It was these purchasers who negotiated with the Virginia Assembly in 1796 the settlement by which, in consideration of the waiver of the proprietary rights, 'the devisees of Lord Fairfax' were confirmed in possession of Lord Fairfax's manors (Shepherd, ii, 22, 140). The story of these proceedings has been admirably, and it would seem definitively, recorded by Mr. H. C. Groome in Fauquier Historical Society Bulletin No. 1, 1921.
.
Although no question had been raised in Virginia as to technical compliance by Dr. Fairfax with the condition of his uncle's will, out of abundant caution in the interest of his own title, John Marshall now stipulated that a change of name by royal license was not what Lord Fairfax had required; so that it 'was at this time (1797) and not until this time, that Dr. Fairfax procured an act of Parliament further authorizing him to bear the name and arms of Fairfax (37 Geo. III, 'c. 3, private; Cf. the act of Virginia of April 7, 1858, Acts 1857-58, ch. 45, p. 46, dispensing with proof of this act of Parliament).
.
By deed dated August 30, 1797 (see the recitals in Marshall v. Conrad, 5 Call, 370), Denny Martin Fairfax terminated his family's interest in the proprietary, reserving for further disposition the manor of Leeds; and thereafter, on April 15, 1800, died and was buried in Loose, April 15, 1800, as 'The Revd. Denny Martin Fairfax, D. D., minister of this parish.'
.
His MI. was as follows: "Here also lieth the body of Denny Martin Fairfax, D. D. 3rd son of Denny & the Horible. Frances Martin. He died 3 Apr. 1800 in the 74th year of his age."
.
His will was as follows:

o.s.p. 
Biography* He was baptised in Loose, April 11, 1731, as 'Thomas Brian the son of Denny Martin, gent. and Frances his wife.' In 1751 when he was 20 he went out to Virginia on the invitation of his, uncle, the sixth Lord Fairfax, and was established at 'his lordship's quarter' in Frederick (now Clarke) ; where his uncle soon joined him in residence. When he came of age he was vested by a grant dated May 21, 1752 (N. N., H: 179), with the 'quarter' and 8,840 acres of surrounding limestone lands, lying on the west bank of the Shenandoah across from Leeds Manor (Cf. Hening, x, 124). This tract was then designated in the grant, 'Greenway Court,' in memory of the Culpeper manor in Kent.
     He was thereupon at once included in the commission and the vestry for Frederick. When the Northern Neck land office was removed from Belvoir in 1762 it was established at Greenway Court and thenceforth he was in charge of it (See William Allason's Letter Book, MS. Virginia State Library).
     In 1755 he was County Lieutenant for Hampshire while his uncle served that office for Frederick (Journals H. B., 1752-58, p. 374; Dinwiddie Papers), and sat in the Assembly of 1756-58 as burgess for Hampshire; but in the Assembly of 1758-61 he was George Washington's colleague for Frederick (Stanard, Colonial Register). In 1758 and 1776 he was an original trustee for the towns of Winchester and Bath (Hening, viii, 326; ix, 247); but when the Revolution came he withdrew from the Frederick Court (Cartmel, p. 93) and all participation in public business, and thenceforth lived in retirement at Greenway Court.
     His monument is the town of Martinsburg (now in W. Va.) which was named in his honour when it was laid out in 1778 by Col. Adam Stephen (Hening, ix, 569; Kercheval, p. 182). He died unmarried, leaving the Greenway Court house and demesne land to his house keeper (for whose descendants see Kercheval, p. 159; Cartmel, p. 275) under the following will:
Winchester District Court W. B., Will dated July 24, 1794, Codicil dated June 22, 1797, Proved October 1, 1798.
I Thomas Bryan Martin of Greenway Court in the County of Frederick and Commonwealth of Virginia.
     To my present housekeeper Betsy Powers 1,000 acres where I now live [i.e., Greenway Court] with all houses thereon, household goods (except plate and watch), one half of stock of horses, cattle, sheep and hogs and choice of ten slaves. To sisters Frances, Sybilla, and Anna Susanna Martin, plate and watch, all moneys, and remainder of personal property not bequeathed to Betsy Powers. To each of my executors 10 guineas.
     I give and devise all the rest of my real estate in possession, reversion or remainder, within the Commonwealth of Virginia and also the aforesaid one thousand acres of land if Betsy Powers aforesaid does not survive me, unto Gabriel Jones of the County of Rockingham Esq., Robert Mackey of the Borough of Winchester and County of Frederick, and John Sherman Woodcock of the said County of Frederick, gentlemen, to be sold by them or the survivors or survivor of them at such time and in such parcels and in such manner as they or the survivors or survivor of them shall judge most advantageous; and the money arising from such sales [See Commonwealth v. Martin's executors, 5 Munford (Va), 117] and the rents and profits of the said lands which may accrue before the sale I give and bequeath to my Sisters hereinbefore named that is to say Frances, Sybilla, and Anna Susanna to be equally divided between them or such of them as shall survive me; or if neither of them survive me, then to my Brothers Denny Fairfax and Philip to be equally divided between them if alive at the time of my death, and if either of them dead to the survivor then alive; subject however to the payment of my just Debts and of the legacies bequeathed to my executors as aforesaid.'
     Executors, Gabriel Jones, Robert Mackey and John Sherman Woodcock. Witnesses, Charles Lee, John Brownley, A. Brownley.
     Codicil: To Betsy Powers chariot and harness and 160 acres 'near the town of Falmouth in the County of Stafford' purchased since execution of will. Witnesses, M. Page, Charles McGill, Philip Bush.

Biography* O.s.p.
.
He was baptised in Loose, August 12, 1733, as 'Philip, the son of Denny Martin, gent. and of Frances his wife;' entered the army in the artillery arm; was present throughout the siege of Gibraltar of 1779-83, when he had the cock of his hat shot off by a 26 pound ball, was mentioned in dispatches and promoted (Drinkwater, History of the Siege of Gibraltar, 1785; Spilsbury's Journal, 1908). Emerging from that adventure as a major, he subsequently rose by seniority to be a major general.
.
On the death of his elder brother, Denny (1800), he succeeded to Leeds Castle; and there, attended by his three maiden sisters, lived out his life unmarried.
.
Being vested by the will of his brother Denny (1798) with the Virginia manor of Leeds, he divested himself of that property by a deed dated October 15, 1806 (of which a copy survives in the Fauquier record of Marshall v. Foley, Land Causes Book B: 267) and thereby finally broke the chain which had bound the Culpepers to Virginia since 1609.
.
He was buried in the vault at Loose, August 11, 1821, as 'General Philip Martin, Leeds Castle, 88.' As he survived his sisters and was the last leaf on his own family tree, as well as on that of his branch of the Culpepers, he sought and found an heir among the Wykehams, who were remote kinsmen on his father's side; and to him left Leeds Castle and £30,000 in the funds, being, in large part, the proceeds of Thomas Bryan Martin's lands in Virginia (which he had inherited from his sisters) under the following will:
