Re: Thomas family names
- Hello Rob,
Thanks for the info on the Thomas name. All facts help when up
against the brick wall. It's interesting perhaps that these girls
may well have been sisters and descended from the single male Thomas
in the 1814 census but there are still no males to carry on the
name. Evan Thomas, my GG Grandfather was born c1822 according to his
death record on the island but no record of birth. Where did the
Thomas name come from? How did it become so common a name on the
island today when there don't seem to be many records of male
Thomases born on the island before mid 1800? It's a great mystery and
a huge brick wall.
