The youngest son, Thomas was born in Banbury and educated at New Inn Hall, Oxford. He was appointed Vicar of Sutton-under-Brailes in Warwickshire, but ejected for nonconformity in 1666. He retired to Hempton in the Parish of Deddington in Oxfordshire where he had inherited property from his father, and continued to preach in nearby villages. According to Matthews (1934) he had also been Rector of St Mary Woolchurch in the 1640s, where he had two children with his first wife Sarah, and had been a signatory to Testimony in 1647 and Vindication in 1648 (in which the London Clergy distanced themselves from the regicide).
It is known from his will that he had four children with his wife Ann. They were Thomas (qv), Benjamin who may have been an apothecary. Their other son Solomon was an academic at Magdalen College Oxford, then in 1699 emigrated to the Colony of Virginia where he was an Anglican clergyman. Their daughter Hopestill married Paul Jennys.
