3. George Oliver Thomas

George Oliver Thomas was born in Calcutta, 1885, the second son of George Edmunds Thomas, who was a merchant with J. Thomas & Sons, Tea Merchants, of Calcutta, and Marion Adelaide Thomas ( nee Ross). His grandfather Thomas Thomas of Llandrinio, Montgomeryshire had been a farmer of 300 acres. After his grandfather’s death George’s uncles John and William, and aunts Mary, Susan Elizabeth and Fanny leased Llantysilio Hall from Sir Henry Beyer Robertson, who had moved to Palé on the death of his father. George and his elder brother Thomas Edmund often stayed in Llantysilio with their aunts when they were home from India, and George was well known for his polo and cricket in North Wales. Whilst Thomas became a merchant in Calcutta like his father, George joined the Royal Welch Fusiliers. In 1911 George was stationed in Roberts barrack, Quetta Balochistan, India, (now Pakistan) with the 2nd Battalion, while Thomas was with the aunts in Llantysilio. In September 1913 Thomas Married Jean Robertson, daughter of Sir Henry Beyer Robertson at Llandderfel. At the outbreak of war George and his regiment were still in India, they were brought back and deployed at Flanders, where, with the exception of two short periods of leave in Llangollen, he served his time until killed in action 26th September 1915, aged 31. He was buried in grave K 21, Cambrin Churchyard extension, Pas de Calais, France

Llantysilio Hall was bought in 1873 by Charles Frederick Beyer, who had it completely rebuilt in 1875. On his death in 1876 he bequeathed it to his godson, Sir Henry Beyer Robertson. It remained with the Robertson family until sold to a private buyer for £300,000 in 1994. On the death of his father, Henry Robertson in 1888 Henry acquired Palé, and he leased out Llantysilio Hall. By 1901 it was occupied by John Thomas,
