      "[July] 1 Thos Son of Wm. & Joanna Gotham"
    Gender Male 
    Occupation 1810 
    Mariner 
    • At the time of his marriage
    Occupation 1821 
    Sloop owner 
    • A shipping register for the port of Exeter records that the 'Dove', a square-sterned sloop, built at Teignmouth in 1821, was owned by Thomas Boyd, William Gotham, Thomas Gotham.
      I believe the last 2 must be this Thomas and his brother William.
    Bequest From 1827 
    From his aunt, Elizabeth Gotham 
    • Elizabeth specified that the interest etc. on £150 was to go to Thomas' father in his life time and then after his father's death she named Thomas and his three siblings surviving at the time she wrote her will, each to receive a share of the £150, to be invested. However, two of Thomas' sisters, Joanna and Patience, died between their aunt and their father; I think their share would have passed to their heirs.

      It is clear that it was this William who married Johanna Bennett, as he was still living when his sister Elizabeth wrote her will in 1827, and she named him and also named several of his children.
