I had an email today from John Middlebrook in Sydney with some details on Thomas Middlebrook ( the younger). He told me that Thomas had in fact died in June 1810 aged around 66 and was buried 3 days later in Morley. This information having come from a transcription from the ( now missing – more on this later) family bible , – the family details of which John’s father Farrer Middlebrook had the great foresight to transcribe.
With this new information it was easy to find a record to prove it.
Hence I have updated my page on the Early Middlebrooks to reflect Thomas’s death date. I believe all the other information remains unchanged at this point.
