Categories: Commerce

Countries: Scotland

Banker.  Born Edinburgh.  With his brother, James, came to London and worked in a bank founded in 1692 by John Campbell.  James married Campbell's grand-daughter and through her inherited the bank. Thomas and James ran the, renamed, bank and on James's death in 1778 Thomas took sole charge.  For his love-life see Baroness Burdett-Coutts. He preferred his less grand house, Holly Lodge, West Hill, Highgate, to his town mansion at 1 Stratton Street, on the corner of Piccadilly.  Some sources say he died at Holly Lodge but we are informed by our contact at the bank that it was Stratton Street.
