Although I have 2 Thomas Drinkwaters in my Family Tree; my grandfather Thomas 1870c-1950c born Gloucester married Sarah Friend of Bristol and my greatgreat grandfather Thomas born Gloucester married Sarah Maysey of Gloucester and married at Twigworth Church Gloucester around 1830. Whether your Thomas is from the same Drinkwater Family I have not got back that far but obviously not a direct ancestor of my Thomas as your Thomas emigrated just after marriage. As you may know the English government records of Births , Marriages and Deaths only date from 1837; prior to that date one has to search Parish Registers of individual churches which go back to about 1580. Drinkwater is quite a common name in Gloucester but I will endeavour to search the 18th Century for my ancestors.
