I am trying to find out information (birth, parents)of Thomas Mather who worked as a factor on the BlairAdam estate at Cleish, Kinross, Scotland. He married Sarah Maria Eastey in 1821 and they had 5 children - Robert, Anna Louisa, Thomas James, Sarah Marian and Andrew. The family moved to London after his death in 1828.

Surnames: Mather Easty
I have collected much info on this Mather family since I am compiling biography of a descendant, David Charles Mather, 1868-1943, who became a premier professional Highland piper and dancer in UK during the 1890s, and went to Montana in 1901. Am not related to these Mathers but another good contact in New Orleans is, via Easty family, and he also has much info. DCM's father was Thomas James Mather who served 10 years in Durham Light Infantry until invalided and he and Irish wife Mary Ann O'Halloran retired to Pancras Parish c. 1856. They married in Co. Clare in about 1850. All six Mather kids attended Royal Caledonian Asylum, noted for training good pipers and dancers. Blair Adam factor Thomas Mather Sr. married Sarah Easty, a daughter of James Easty, owner of well-known Easty's hotel in London. These two apparently met in Kinross where she taught school. After he died in 1828, Blair Adam's owner tried to persuade her to stay, offering a croft and a cow, but she took her family to London where, according to my contact, she taught in poorhouses. London seems to have swallowed rest of family. Times index contains two news stories about cabby driver Albert Mather being found innocent in the death of a pedestrian. I believe this was Albert Inkerman Mather, DCM's brother, as age and residence are close. DCM apparently had little or no contact with his family of origin once heading north, in his late teens, to compete professionally, and his Butte-Bozeman obits list no known relatives.

Hi Rob,
Sorry for the late reply I have not been researching for a few months!
The Mather family I am researching moved to St Pancras so I don't think that they are who you are looking for.
I am looking for the children of George Martin Mather and Jane Elizabeth Nock. They were married 1883. The eldest was born in 1884 at Pancras and the youngest in 1906 at Pancras. There were 13 children in all but I have only traced 8.
George is the son of Thomas James Mather (Scotland) and Mary Ann O'Halloran (Ireland). TJM's brother, Robert, also moved to London. Hope these names help
Sharon

Hi Sharon,
Thanks for the info -as you say I think we are different Mather families in London who are not directly related. Still perhaps they might have known each other.
Regards
Rob
