      Descended on his mother's side from Tulip Mewburn of the Acomb line.
      His children were all given the name Mewburn along with Crook, and this pairing has been passed on. Only one child chose to hyphenate the name and that too has been passed on.
      A sketch of Thomas by Fred Roe hangs in the National Portrait Gallery.
      In the National Register of 1939 he appears on his own at 10 Gainsborough Road in Chiswick. The artist Terence Cuneo, with mother Nell and brother Desmond, was at number 2 (and a couple of art teachers are also on the road).
      Thomas was a member of the Savage Club then at Adelphi Terrace in London. This was a club for those in the arts. Copies of the lists of members for 1926 and 1931 at the Henry Moore Institute in Leeds show him as a member from 1916.

      A detailed portrait of his life has been published:
