Warning: Check the data.
A father's death date should not be more than nine months before one of his children's birth dates.
Based on his will above, I have removed Susanna Hughes as a spouse. She died after he died, and she and her children are not mentioned in his will. -- Fiscus-32 10:07, 19 November 2016 (EST)
Thomas is not named as a son of Thomas in the will of Thomas. He may not be a son of Thomas.
There were several items in the original biography referring to dates after his date of death. I removed those. Also, the birthplace in the biography text does not match the birthdate in the vital statistics at the top of the profile. -- Fiscus-32 10:07, 19 November 2016 (EST)

It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Thomas by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Thomas:
