......... crossing the river ........
At the moment this is the only reference I have that takes my lot across the river.The question is -
Was Thomas born in the Deptford area or did he get marriedthere because it was the bride's home parish?
He was a soldier and the family lived in Worship Street, Shoreditch when his son Thomas James was born in 1814.Thomas James was the first of the Umbrella Makers that I know of.
