The first child of James and Mary was named Mary Ann Mitchelmore WHITE [Tree 900], apparently in Thomas's honour.










A sergeant at mace was the mayor's personal attendant and mace-carrier.





In relation to average earnings, Thomas's estate would have been equivalent to about 70,000 today.
