Tom Thomas in Strangeways
« on: Wednesday 10 October 18 21:39 BST (UK) »
Hi everyone, I have a relative called Thomas Thomas born about 1850/1851 employed as a Calenderer, married to Margaret Mattison (son of Owen Thomas). I was told some time ago that there is a Tom Thomas born in 1850 at Strangeways Prison in 1876-1878 (it may have been a rootshat member who told me).

I there anyone who can corroborate this is the same Tom Thomas or tell me what crime he had committed please?

Many thanks, Luke
