Thomas Rea (g-g-g-g-g-g-g-grandfather)

This is all from memory, as I find the records to support this I will fix any mistakes and add in the references.

Thomas Rea was born about 1740 but the first record I have found indicates that in 1757 he was an apprentice Baker in Barnwood, Gloucestershire, England.  He was about seventeen years of age at that time and was apprenticed to a Baker by the name of Thomas Drew.

Records refer to four men as the son of Thomas Rea, Baker from which I have assumed they are all brothers.  No mention is made of their mother.

Thomas’ children were:

John Rea birthdate unknown
Joseph Rea birthdate unknown – this is our ancestor
Benjamin Mutlow Rea b1778 – d 1855
William Rea b1781
