We have been unsuccessful in determining Thomasís birth/baptism.
There are a number of records for Thomas Alcocks born in that area in 1821 but they have different parents
.

 

We think from records in the National Archives that Thomas enlisted in the Royal Marines, Portsmouth Division in 1841 and remained in the Royal Marines until 1862.
