    Married to Anne Canham on 29th January 1874 [8b 739] at Our Lady of Good Help Church, Liverpool. At the time he was a gardener possibly for one of the large nearby houses, and Anne was living at Dudlow Lane, probably a housekeeper for the Sharples family.

     

    In about 1876 or 1877 they moved to Ashton in Makerfield. Don't yet know why, but apparently employed by the first Lord Gerard, Robert Tolver Gerard, who died in 1887and who moved over from Ireland in the second half of the 19th c., first to his estate in Cambridgeshire, then to Ashton, Garswood Hall. The second Lord Gerard died in 1902 and the next Lord Gerard then moved to Hertfordshire in 1929. Garswood Hall was used as a hospital for officers during WW1 (Lady Mary Emmeline Laurs was the matron, she died in February 1918). Later Garswood Hall became a golf club, which it remains.

     

    Thomas attended St Oswald's RC church, Liverpool Road where he rang the bells, maintained the gardens and dug the graves: on his gravestone it says he was the 'faithful custodian of St Oswald's for 42 years'.

     

     

    Thomas is described as a Gardener.
