Thomas Paine is estimated born around 1721 – 1724 and very likely baptized at St. Nicholas at  Brighton.  
The Paine Lineage in the Village of Brighton Sussex goes back to the Reformation although there is no 
firm link to Thomas's Parents at this time.  
There are two baptism entries which could relate to Thomas although it may be pointed out that the entire 
family seems to be interconnected and the sharing of family Christian names between families was frequent. 
                       Thomas Payne married Elizabeth Curley on the 30th November 1749 at Brighton. 
They had four recorded children;
