Date of Death:

Thomas was born in or near Granard c.1774.

Thomas was a career soldier, who enlisted with the British Army at the age of 19, c.1793. He joined the 11th Regiment of Foot at Athlone in August 1808 and served with that regiment to September 1814. During his career, he participated in a number of important campaigns, including the 1798 Rebellion and the Peninsular War (in Jones' Company) and was decorated for the Battle of Toulouse 1814

Thomas was discharged as unfit for military service in April 1814. His Royal Hospital Kilmainham pension discharge entry noted that it was in consequence of gun shot wound of body in action with the enemy at Castlebar in the year 1798 and worn out constitution. 

Nevertheless, Thomas appears to have reenlisted with the 84th Regiment shortly after and served another six year term; he was discharged in March 1821, when his age was given as approximately 46. He then reenlisted with the 9th Royal Regiment at Birr.
