Thomas was born in Wolverhampton in 1892, the son of Thomas and Jane Whittle. Given his unusual middle name, he must have been a relation of William Steen Whittle, whose father was also Eutychus. In 1891, Thomas was living with his parents, sisters Clarice M. and Blanche M., and brother Benjamin G., at 70 New Zoar Street, Wolverhampton. I have not been able to find Thomas on the 1901 or 1911 censuses, but in 1905 he married Annie Bishton in Wolverhampton.

Thomas’s name was listed in the Midland Counties Express on 5 September 1914 as one of the men who were willing to enlist, although I have been unable to confirm details of his military service. His address by this date was given as the School of Art, Wolverhampton. Whatever he did during the First World War, he appears to have survived, as he died in Wolverhampton in 1944 at the age of 63.
