  • Notes 
    • This Thomas must be the one who was apprenticed as an attorney at Newcastle in 1768. There is no other candidate of the right age.
      The date for Thomas's marriage is given by Dorothea Mewburn-Watson, with no citation - nor record has been found.
      Thomas's precise death date is from Dorothea Mewburn-Watson.
      There are monumental inscriptions in the chancel of St John Baptist at Stanground that say:
      "--- Mewburn, d. 1789, and -- his daughter, d. 1788; Thomas William Mewburn, d. 1795, and Mary Ann his daughter, d 1794".
      The first two with names missing are believed to be John and Ann children of Thomas (1717).
      The Land Tax Redemption of 1798 shows a Thomas Mewburn occupying land at Standground owned by Lord Brownlow. He is assessed at £57 14/-, vastly more than than anyone else in the area (mostly assessed at a few shillings or pounds).

      The Monthly Magazine, Vol 31, 1811 notes that Elizabeth, eldest daughter of Mr. Thomas Mewburn of Boroughbury was married to Daniel Webster.
