In 1833, sadly, Thomas's older brother Henry passed away age 4 at Forton.
His mother Mary, passed away on 7th November 1838, shortly after the birth of younger brother William. We are not sure of the cause of death but it may have been a complication of childbirth given the short period of time.
In 1841, Thomas, 10, was staying with the Fieldhouse family in Forton and working alongside his sister, Elizabeth,12, as a Farm Servant.
In 1841, his father married again. His new wife was Elizabeth Walker.
