The London Standard newspaper, dated Wednesday 25th December 1850, contains details of an investigation into recent collisions on the Eastern Counties Railway and includes a list of those injured. One of those listed is Mr Blunderfield, of 36, Upper Seymour Street, Portman Square who sustained a bruised shoulder. Thomas is recorded at this address in the 1851 Census a few months later.

Thomas appears to have had a variety of occupations. In the 1851 Census, he is described as a Cabinet Maker, by 1861 a Carpenter and Joiner. A Bankruptcy Notice in 1864 gives his occupation as a Cheesemonger. A newspaper article in 1867 reports him as the Verger at his local church (although this was probably unpaid and part time). In 1871, he is working as an Estate Agent. In 1881 as a Clerk with the London Steamboat Company and finally in 1891, the Census describes him as a Commercial Traveller in Soap.

Other marriages:
, Mary

The IGI lists a Bruning Blunderfield, son of Thomas and Mary, baptised 21 Jun 1789. When I searched the original registers in the early 1990's, I only found Joseph Brunning Blunderfield, son of Thomas and Mary, born on the 5 Jan 1789 and baptised on the 23 Jan 1789. Thomas's will refers to a son Brunning which initially led me to believe that there was such a son, however, there was no mention of Joseph Brunning in the will yet it is known that he survived until 1845. No Brunning Blunderfield can be found in the census, Given the similarity and closeness of the two baptism dates, I must conclude that the IGI entry (which was submitted by an LDS member not an extracted record) is incorrect and that there was no Brunning Blunderfield.
