Census details

Brushes with the LAW

Thomas was given 12 calendar months for larceny in 1889. There are 2 other sentences over the years meted out to a Thomas THOMPSON in Norfolk, but the sentences were such that he would have been imprisoned for various census but he was listed at home with his family. For the moment I am assuming he is a different Thomas. Neither were covered in the Bury Post.
