Where was he born (it was about 1827), when did he arrive in India and who was his wife (she gave birth to Thomas in Calcutta in about 1852)?

A Thomas Quinn born 1852, in India lived in Barnsley, England in 1891.                     https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:72Y1-G6Z

The same Thomas Quinn was in Brighouse, Yorkshire in 1901.  https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:X9RR-9NS

A Corporal Thomas T Quinn was buried in Calcutta in 1944.                   https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QVVN-Y1YV

Did not find the name of the mother for any Thomas Quinn in India.

I may have confused you. Trying to trace Edward Quinn, Thomas' father. He worked as a Commission Agent and was born in about 1827, probably in Yorkshire. Don't know when he went to India but it must have been before 1852, when Thomas was born in Calcutta. Thomas came back at some stage and married Jane Hempsall Bairstow in 1873. One of their children was Percy Stowell Warburton Quinn, who was my grandfather. Hope you can shed light on Edward.....and Thomas' mother.

Thank you

There was Edward Quinn b. 1827, Cork Freement. Also, an Edward Quinn born Bradford, Yorkshire. Other Edwards were born in Warmfield, Yorkshire and in Leeds, Yorkshire. Maybe one of them is the right one for your search.

I now see this is the wrong Thomas

I'm afraid they are not related. Thomas, my great-grandfather, was married in 1873 and fathered Percy Stowell W. Quinn in 1880, who was my grandfather.
