Thanks for that M, certainly looks like young Thomas didn't come from the most prosperous family background. I wonder if there was some sort of charitable link between the Clerkenwell work house or Parish and the Chepstow area, or was he rehoused by his extended family, or ??
Intriguing stuff !

What seems certain is that his life was probably dramatically improved by not staying in the particularly "bleak" Clerkenwell Workhouse.
