Born 2 Feb 1818 at Falmouth, Cornwall (ref Army attestation papers available on findmypast).
He was christened 15 Feb 1818 at Town Church, Guernsey. Christening witnesses were Jean Brimage, Jean Samways, Marie Ray.
Thomas became a soldier. He enlisted on 18 Oct 1835 and was attested on 20 Oct 1835 at Jersey on the Island of Jersey into the Rifle Brigade, stating that he was born in or near the town of Falmouth, aged 17 years 9 months, and by trade a Cabinet Maker. He served as a Private from 20 Oct 1835 to 1 Jun 1840, including the period from 4 Sep 1838 to 12 Nov 1838 when he was imprisoned (in unknown circumstances). It then became evident that he was "labouring under incipient consumption" which made him unable to perform the duties of a soldier, and that it had not been "caused or aggravated by vice or intemperance".
He died in Sep 1840 in Guernsey. He was buried 24 Sep 1850 at Stranger's Cemetery, Guernsey. At his death his age was given as "Aged 22 Yrs 7 Mths".
