The parentage of Thomas is not known. He does not appear to belong to the Carperby/Aysgarth Sarginsons, and can be seen first on the 1841 census of Middleham as a horse breaker. Ann's parentage, and their marriage are also unknown.
  1. Mary Jane: baptized 30 September 1860
Thomas, Ann and a daughter Jemima appear on the 1881 census at Seymour Grover Northwood Cottage, Stretford in Lancashire. Jemima (aged 17) was born at Lymm, in Cheshire: being a coachman was evidently a well travelled career for Thomas.
