ADMIRAL SIR THOMAS PASLEY, BARONET (1734-1808)

Admiral Sir Thomas Pasley, Baronet, is the fifth son of James Pasley of Craig (1694 X 1695-1773). According to the Complete Baronetage he was born at Craig on 2 March 1734 Complete Baronetage but while there seems to be no good reason for doubting his date of birth it seems possible that his father had not yet taken up residence at Craig. This possibility is suggested by the fact that Thomas had a younger brother named William who may have been born at Burn in Westerkirk on 10 July 1738 and a younger brother named Charles who may have been born while his parents were residents of Murtholm. Charles Pasley's baptism was recorded at Westerkirk on 4 February 1740.
