Yes, they were cousins. Thomas senior (of the Star Inn) and Charles (from Quay St) were brothers.

Hi I'm just smiling to myself about the Passey / Pawsey records . This is what us Pawseys are up against and what started this thread in the first place Pawsey is such a difficult name. Thank you for all your help. I am sure now that the Thomas Pawsey on the Greengate memorial is Thomas Pawsey the landlord .
Hi , I'm sorry I'm getting confused , you are correct. The Thomas from the Greengate memorial is the son of Thomas and Maria. The Thomas in the Chapel street WW2 memorial is the son of the Greengate memorial Thomas if that makes any sense. It's all so confusing !!
