Thomas was baptised on 18 August 1834 at Rochdale, Lancashire. he was born at Wuerdale, Rochdale, to parents James, a woollen weaver, and Alice.
Before entering the ministry Thomas worked in a cotton mill.
The 1851 census records Thomas as married to Hannah (b abt1835). I have not been able to identify a marriage record.
I have not been able to identify Thomas after the 1871 census in online records, Can anyone point me in the right direction?
