bullet  Notes:

Thomas was like his father a Norway merchant in Southwark. He and his wife Sarah Wight (qv) had ten children. Their eldest son Daniel is also thought to have been a Norway merchant, but little more is known about him. Their next son Thomas lived in Greenwich, was a property owner, and is not thought to have married. Their eldest daughter Sarah also did not marry, and lived in Greenwich. The next son Griffith was a distiller in Southwark, and married Susannah Stoughton, a doctor's daughter: they had two children who died young. The next son Samuel was a successful distiller in Vauxhall, and was MP for Ipswich: he married Sarah Deane in 1706, and had three children but only one grandson who inherited his wealth on condition that he changed his surname from Egleton to Kent.

Their youngest daughter Elizabeth married Dabee Wells, a lace-maker in Blowbladder Street in the City of London, and had 10 children. Thomas and Sarah's youngest surviving son was John (qv).
