Thomas and his brother Hezekiah came to Canada in 1866 on the S.S. Nova Scotian. They returned to England, and it is thought that they brought their niece Elizabeth Hood with them.
Thomas married Annie Hackett in Nov or Dec 1876, records are confusing on the exact date, there are 3 dates given on different records.
As a young man, Thomas joined the Royal Scots, a military regiment, and served 21 years. He saw a lot of foreign service in his military career. Towards the end of his career he played in the Royal Scots band.
After leaving the service of his country, Thomas was a brewer. He and his wife worked in "The Ship" Quayside, Ely, a brewery that was in use from 1661 until 1956. He worked as a trusted foreman for Messrs. Cutlack and Harlock near 30 years. Today, the building no longer exists.
All of their children were born in Ely. Elizabeth Hood lived with them until she returned to America with her grandmother, Thomas's mother, Martha (Scarrow) Cheville.
