Notes

  • Thomas lived at Lower House, Everleigh, Hampshire (now called Everleigh House).  The East-West section is the part which originally belonged to him, the Georgian frontage on the South being added later.  His initials, TAK, and the date 1711, are carved into the chimney.

    His portait has been handed down through the family and is mentioned specifically in the will of Sarah Kingsman (d1758) widow of William Kingsman (d1736, Rector of Sherfield English and West Tytherley, nephew to this Thomas by his brother, Timothy).  She left the portrait to her nephew, Thomas Kingsman (1717-1779, Rector of Botley, son of John Kingsman, William's brother).

    This younger Thomas was Thomas senior's Godson and the major beneficiary of his will, inheriting his house and estates in Everleigh.
