Lionel Cole's records

THOMAS COLE of Brasted, labourer (1781-1864)

Thomas Cole was baptised on December 30th 1781, the second son of William Cole (1744-1822) of Brasted and his wife Sarah Mills. Thomas Cole, labourer, is mentioned in a list from Westerham of the late 1790s. In 1803 he was sworn in to the Militia as a substitute for William Jones of Brasted, at the same time as his brother William. Thomas was illiterate.

Thomas Cole married Jane (1780-1858), born at Abchester, Northumberland. The date and place of this marriage is unknown, but they were certainly married in 1813., when Brasted parish started making payments to Thomas Cole's wife. In July 1816 Brasted parish sent £7 to Thomas Cole's wife and family at South Shields, and there were other payments later. Thomas Cole's son Thomas was born at Durham in 1816, and his older children were not baptised in Brasted.

By 1818 Thomas Cole had been released from his service and was back at Brasted with his family. They immediately required relief and this continued for life. The details are too lengthy to be reproduced here and are similar to those for William Cole, brother of Thomas. They include payments for clothing, and for support of the children. Like William Thomas worked on the roads, and like him in 1837 he was required to evacuate the free accommodation provided by the parish.

In the 1841 census Thomas Cole appears as an agricultural labourer, aged 50, with his wife Jane (50), described as from Scotland. There were sons Thomas (25) and Robert (18), both agricultural labourers, and daughters Hannah (16) and Ann (14).

In 1848 Thomas Cole was living in a cottage in Brasted village, one of a row between Mrs Maynard's house and one occupied by Mrs Akehurst. It belonged to Robert Fishlock of Cudham and was condemned for bad drainage.

In the 1851 census Thomas Cole (63), agricultural labourer lived with his wife Jane (63), born in Abchester, Northumberland. With them were Robert (26) and Hannah(6), a granddaughter.

In 1855 Mrs Cole received a gown from Newman's Charity. In 1856 Thomas Cole received a jacket from Newman's Charity. On February 14th 1858 Jane Cole was buried in Brasted, aged 78. In 1859 Thomas received another coat from the Charity. In the 1861 census he was in Sevenoaks Union Workhouse, aged 85. He was buried on March 14th 1864, from the workhouse, aged 88.
