In Reply to: Re: Sir Thomas Coram of the Royal Navy by Thomas Coram of 208

Hi Thomas,
I have managed to find some more information on Thomas Coram. I have three books, two on the Foundling hospital and one on Thomas Coram. This is an extract from the book on Capt. Coram by H F B Compston;
'Thomas Coram was a Dorset man, though he appears to have belonged to the Corhams, an old Devonshire family long connected with Ottery St. Mary and, later on, with Kinterbury. His father is believed to have been a master mariner of Lyme Regis, and here Thomas Coram was born about the year 1668. A younger brother, William, was baptized at Lyme in 1671.'
Please contact me if you have any information concerning Thomas Coram and his descendants.
