Thomas Eaton, Surgeon

For many years I could find nothing on anyone named Eaton except for a few relatives who had “Eaton” as their middle names. Thanks to and I’ve recently found information that puts to rest the previous family story about Sir Geoffrey Eaton, surgeon on Lord Nelson’s flagship – and introduces Thomas Eaton (c. 1775 – 1832), described as an eminent surgeon who served on the Gun Vessel, “Attack” for the Royal Navy.

In 1798 Thomas Eaton and Mary Brown were married at Stoke Damerel, Devon.
