Samuel Thomas was the second born, the first being a sister, Frances, who along with their parents, were sharing the same living accommodation as Jane’s brother and family in Vine Street, Quarry Bank. By 1901, the family had expanded by 4 more children, Joseph, Bertie, May and Mary J. Samuel senior was still working as a coal miner but the family residence was now at 10 Victoria Road, Quarry Bank. In 1911, things were much the same, and still living in the same street. The one exception was that Samuel junior had moved away from his family home to 12 Cooperative Street, Normanton, Yorks, where he was lodging with a family who were from his home town of Quarry Bank, where he was working as a general labourer in a local chemical works. It would have been after this date that Samuel moved to Worksop to work at Manton pit, and also his parents, Samuel and Jane, who took residence at 40 Marecroft in Worksop.
