  • Notes 
    • Thomas was born and christened at Ospringe during 1808. He married his sister-in-law, Ann Gregory, on June 18, 1831 at Preston and together they produced eleven children: Mary Ann who died shortly after her first birthday; George, a mariner; Thomas, Jr., who eventually worked as a fisherman and beer retailer; Samuel a mariner whose ultimate fate was to drown during a storm at sea; Emma; Ellen; Alice; and Daniel Walter, also who eventually became a mariner. Two other of Thomas and Ann's children died during their infancy: Thomas born during 1836 and Ann born during 1844. Frederick John, who was born during 1849 died two months prior to his 7th birthday.

      In 1841 Thomas, a shipwright like his father, and family were living with John and Judith Gregory - Ann's parents. By 1851 Thomas and family had moved to Flood Lane and George, at age 16, was already working as a mariner. Thomas was still employed as a shipwright.

      As of the 1861 census, Thomas and family were living on Tanner Street at a place called "Friendship". He was still working as a shipwright and the family had taken in three boarders all from Westall, Suffolk and all of whom were labourers in the local brickfields. One of the boarders, George Card, was eventually to become Thomas' son-in-law, marying Emma on 31 January 1864. In 1861, however, Emma was working as a general servant.

      By 1871 Thomas, at age 67, was an unemployed ship builder living on Flood Lane. Ann had died and Thomas had remarried, Sarah, herself a widow. Living with them was Sarah's daughter, Mary A. Wraight, 19, who was working as a general domestic servant and I fear the only source of income for the household. Thomas and his second wife moved to Halling prior to the census of 1881. There, Thomas found employment as a carpenter.

      Author Richard Hugh Perks states "my first reference is in the 1865 Mercantile Navy List where he [Thomas Milsted] appears as owner of the fishing smack ROYAL GEORGE. This may be the same THOMAS MILSTED who purchased the small fishing bawley NANCY in 1896 (Reference Fa 3/1 Fishing Register)."

      It is my belief that the Thomas Milsted who owned the Royal George is this particular Thomas and that it was his son, Thomas who purchased the NANCY.
