    Notes 
    • Thomas was recommended for admission to the Great Hospital by Sir Peter Eade.
      "After Sir William's death the Norwich High School for Girls first opened its doors here on 22nd February 1875, under the supervision of head mistress Miss Ada Benson, whose brother later became Archbishop of Canterbury. Two years later the school moved to the Assembly House, after which the property was purchased by Sir Peter (then Doctor) Eade. An honorary consultant physician to the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital, he became an Alderman of the city and member of the Board of Guardians, being made Sheriff in 1880-81 and Mayor in 1883, 1893 and 1895. He received a knighthood in 1885 from Queen Victoria in recognition of his public services. A member of the committee of the Norfolk and Norwich Archaeological Society, he published several important works on local matters, the chief, perhaps, being his History of the Parish of St Giles, Norwich, which ran to two editions, and a History of the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital. He died in 1915 aged ninety, and his wife Ellen two months later."
