Thomas is mentioned in his father's will. He was a marriage witness when his sister, Esther, married John Handy at Malmesbury in 1776.
The Malmesbury records do have a baptism of Thomas, son of Charles & Anne Exton on 3 Jan 1741/2. This could be Hester's brother, and the wedding witness. But another Thomas Exton was baptized at Malmesbury in 1741, the son of Charles and Elizabeth Exton. I believe Charles and Ann are the correct parents for Thomas and Esther, since the Westport monumental inscription includes an Ann, wife of Charles, but no Elizabeth. The same family inscription includes Thomas and Mary, the wife of Thomas with death dates and ages that fit very well.
Thomas married Mary Browning in 1766 at Malmesbury Abbey. The record notes that Thomas was a yeoman of Westport, and Mary was a spinster from Malmesbury parish.2 SOUR S205 2 SOUR S33 2 SOUR S199 2 SOUR S33
