CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: Dr Henry Thomas (1832-1894) was a native of Chester, Cheshire, the son of Thomas Thomas (1799-1887), a printer, originally from Bangor, Caernarfonshire. Dr Thomas was articled to Dr Norton of Chester in 1852, then studied medicine in America, where he graduated as an M.D. of the Western College of Homeopathic Medicine, Cleveland, Ohio, in 1856, and of the Homeopathic College of Pennsylvania at Philadelphia, 1855. He returned to Chester, succeeding Dr Norton as resident proprietor and medical superintendent of the Llandudno Hydropathic Establishment in c. 1874, where he worked until his death in 1894. Miss Eva Thomas (d. 1952), the youngest daughter of Dr Henry Thomas, was a teacher, primarily of French and German, but she also gave lessons in music and English. Miss Thomas and her brothers and sisters corresponded with John Price M.A. (1803-1887), a cleric and naturalist, in the period 1878-1884, mainly on the subject of natural history.
