He married, at Ipswich in 1860, Jane Pierse (1840-1919), and had three sons and two daughters. In 1861, Thomas was an ‘landscape artist and animal painter’ living at 20 Bolton Lane, Ipswich with his 21-year-old wife Jane, who was born, at Ipswich. Living with them were Jane’s parents, Thomas Pearse, a currier, and his wife Jane. In 1865, an artist in California, Woodbridge Road, Ipswich, and in 1871, living at Rose Cottage, Cauldwell Hall Road, Ipswich with three of their children lived Thomas Edward 9, Annie Agnes 4 and Robert 6 weeks.

  • In 1891, they were living at 119 London Road with the children except Ernest William, who had left home. About 1899, Thomas went to live with his son Ernest, in London but died after a short illness, at the home of his son-in-law, Frank Brown, at Heathfield, Ipswich, on 15 May 1906, aged 81.
