My brother Tom [ The one working with Papa] came to me with patterns to choose for a suit. I paid him all to this day, and did give him 10l. upon account

"Tom" was born in 1634, was apprenticed to his father and followed him into the tailoring trade. He struggled socially, in part because of a speech difficulty, which rendered him less than desirable as a mate. Nor did he husband his business well. At his death 15 March 1664, he left debts of more than £300 and an illegitimate daughter by his maid who had been put in a foster home.
