    • Thomas was a beneficiary in his cousin Anthony Becon's will, which included "Item I give to my uncle Beacons children Eighteene shillinge to buy each of them Mr. Rogers Doctrine of faith, and some other good books."

    a 1st cousin 10 x removed of mine
    Occupation Mersham, Kent, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    Landowner 
    • Thomas is generally referred to as a gent., not a yeoman, but it is clear that he owned some land at some time.
      In 1645/46 one Clement Court, yeoman of Waltham, sold some land in Mersham, and with it was included a passage to the land over land he had bought from Thomas Becon. (document in the West Sussex Record Office, ref. WISTON/4714)

      I think he was also left land in Mersham by his father, though with the restriction that this went to his son's Theodore and William after his death.  
    Buried 22 Dec 1659  St. Bartholomew’s Church, Waltham, Kent, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    Notes 
    • (from Rootsweb) Research and source notes: Deborah Sweet - 1) From Burke's Landed Gentry, 1952 op cit- "Of Waltham, assessed for subsidy, 1628."

      Although Thomas was styled a gentleman, with at least 9 children surviving him, this could have reduced the wealth of the children, hence they did not remain gentry. Some families also suffered wealth-wise from the Civil War - I don't know of any evidence as to what side any of the family took.
