Thomas Blackman

Nothing is known of this man other than that his name appears in three consecutive lists published in Chailey Parish Magazine between January and March 1916 of specially attested men. 

He is possibly the same Thomas Blackman noted on the 1901 census who was born in Barcombe, Sussex around 1891.  The census lists the following family members: Horace Blackman, head, aged 43 and working as a carter on a farm; his wife, 51 year old Ann Blackman.  Children noted are: Horace Blackman (14), a carter boy on a farm, Caroline Blackman (11) and Thomas (9).  A boarder, 58 year old Thomas Moon, is also noted as living with the family in their house at Mount Pleasant in Barcombe.
