1806-1881

By Geoff Dickinson

Thomas was born in 1806 at Kempsford, Gloucestershire..

Ministry

Thomas was peaceable, agreeable and willing at all times to cooperate with his brethren in the work of the ministry; as far as his health allowed he worked and preached with great acceptance. As a preacher he was not calculated to dazzle his audiences by any remarkable flow of eloquence. His discourses were pregnant with rich thought, plain, scriptural and judicious.

Family

Thomas married Leah Marina Pamela Hansford (1809-1857) in 1848 at Powerstock, Dorset.

He married Elizabeth (1816-1881) at some time after the 1871 census.

Thomas died on 30 July 1881 at Brown Knowl, Cheshire. He is buried in the graveyard attached to the chapel at Brown Knoll.
