Thomas Small Senior, was born in England, in the year 1788. His history is a bit limited, he migrated
from England to Canada, and settled in English Settlement, Queens County New Brunswick, but the year is in doubt.
He died December 17 1852, as recorded on the tombstone in a small Cemetery on the old farm in English Settlement,
at the age of 64 years.
Notes of Col. Frederick H. Mills.
Thomas was an officer at the naval shipyards in Plymouth, England. After Napoleon's capture at Waterloo
he was taken on the "Bilerifow" which went to South Hampton and Plymouth for repairs over which he had
charge. He made a cane out of teakwood which was later stolen in Canada. He married Miss Saunders whose family
went to Australia (free will) at the time of the discovery of gold.
