When was Thomas born? Who was his father? My Great Grandfather was William Edward Eyre son of Frederick Eyre, son of William Eyre, which goes to a George then a Thomas, but that would be a Thomas back in 1700s I believe. My father Carvel Ross Eyre married a Smith, Myrna Lee Smith, whose father was Linton Erwin Smith, what is your Smith lineage? and have you traced your Eyre's much further? we might be related in through a Thomas via son of Frederick Eyre and Mary Mitchell, that had some 9 children.
