By Geoff Dickinson

Thomas was born on 11 October 1831 at St Ives.

Ministry

Much of his ministry was spent in purely mission work. In 1871, Thomas was sent by the GMC to Canada. As a result of his wife’s ill health and the union of the Methodist Church in Canada, Thomas returned to England in 1880.

His obituary records that his was not a brilliant career but a useful one. He made no pretensions to extraordinary ability and culture, yet he possessed a vigorous mind, a lively fancy, and discriminating judgement.

Thomas moved to Exmouth when he superannuated.

Family

Thomas was married to Hannah (1832-1905)

Thomas died on 3 June 1903 at Withycombe Raleigh, nr Exmouth, Devon.
