Thomas' surname was Thomas alias Scott. There were several other families with this alternative surname in Luxulyan and Lanlivery in the early 17th Century, but it is not known how he was related to them, or why they changed their name from Scott to Thomas. He had six children with his wife Petronell - three boys and three girls. They were baptised in Lanlivery and Luxulyan, although he was described as a yeoman of Lanivet when he died in 1690. All these Parishes are located to the south of Bodmin in Cornwall. His inventory shows that he was a farmer.
Their eldest son Thomas married Grace Littleton in Lanivet, but little more is known about them. Their two eldest daughters were Jane and Junpriered, only known through the baptism register. Their next son Robert was a prosperous yeoman farmer in the Parish of Lanivet, and was living at his newly built house on Trekillick Farm when he died in 1732: it is likely that at least some of his wealth was acquired through his marriage to Thamosyn Bullock, with whom he had eight children, six surviving childhood. Thomas and Petronell's youngest son was James (qv), and their youngest daughter Agnes married Richard Rundell of Lanlivery, and moved to St Winnow.
