Born at Twyning Parish, Gloucestershire, England, christened 17 May 1812; son of Isaac I Bloxham (1775) and Ann Davis, she died 1813 and Thomas' father married 2. Mary Lane (died) 3. Elizabeth Mason.

Thomas Sr. married Dianah (Diana) Harris (twin of Hannah Harris, who died at birth). Dianah was a daughter of Robert Sr. Harris & Sarah Oakey.

They married on 15 August 1831 at Saint Mary De Lode Church, Gloucester Parish, Gloucestershire, England. Their first child, Robert Charles died between 1832-1840, buried at Deerhurst. Five more children were born to them by 1840.

They and their children sailed with the Robert Jr. Harris and Daniel Browett families aboard the "Echo", 16 February 1841 from Liverpool to New Orleans. Their youngest, 11 month old Isaac II, died about March 1841 and was buried at sea in the Atlantic Ocean.

Diana delivered Isaac III at Nauvoo, Hancock, Illinois 20 August 1842, where they lived until 1846. During the next year they moved from encampment to encampment with the exiled Mormons of Nauvoo. Diana died at Winter Quarters about November 1847 and is buried at Winter Quarters Pioneer Cemetery, Florence (Omaha), Douglas, Nebraska with two of her nephews.

Thomas married Elizabeth Sheen about 1849 at Council Bluffs, Pottawattamie, Iowa and immigrated to Salt Lake City, Salt Lake, Utah where they resided until her death in 1881. She was 15 years older than he and this researcher has found no children recorded. Elizabeth is buried at Salem City Cemetery, Utah County, Utah.

Thereafter, he moved to Idaho to be near his and Diana's children.
