jjb - welcome to RootsChat - sorry not to reply earlier, I've been away from a computer for a few days.

As Thomas died after 1858 his will is available from the court service by post for 5:
http://www.hmcourts-service.gov.uk/cms/1226.htm
I think Lichfield Records Office may also have a transcribed copy from the local probate office - what I have is a scan of a transcription done by a family member many years ago, which version they had access to I don't know.

I'm guessing there may be a family interest. If you'd like the basics I'd be happy to pass them along via a personal message (PM). You need to have made three posts on RootsChat to be able to use the PM system so you'd need a couple more - a couple of one liners on this thread would count. I'd also be interested if you've anything you can share.
