Thomas was a farmer and owned a two story, two bedroom home. At the time of his death, he was mostly retired and his sons had taken over the responsibility of the farm. An inventory of his estate following his death showed that his goods, crops, and stock were worth 41, 15 s and 6 p.

Marridge Hill has beautiful farmland- would love to visit someday! 

Death- Thomas died in Mar 1639 in Marriage Hill, Wiltshire, England. He was only 59 years old. The cause of his death is unknown. His wife Anne didn’t live a long life either, dying at 60.

Burial- It is unknown where Thomas is buried, but two different sources state that his wife Anne-- one source says that she is buried in the Mildenhall cemetery in Mildenhall, England; another source says that she is buried in Ramsbury, England.
