Thomas H DARBY of Bream, living Lancashire 1900s (General)

Reference his entry in the 1901 Census, Philip Herbert's landlord was also a Breamer;

1901 Atherton, Leigh, Lancashire, England
Household Role Sex Age Birthplace
Thos H Darby Head M 31 INSURANCE AGENT. Bream, Gloucestershire
Ellen Darby Wife F 31 Brown Ash, Herefordshire
Eva Darby Daughter F 8 Atherton, Lancashire
Alice Darby Daughter F 6 Atherton, Lancashire
Ellen Darby Daughter F 0 Atherton, Lancashire
Philip Jno Herbert Boarder M 24 CONFECTIONER. Bream, Gloucestershire

(Could Brown Ash = Bromsash, near Ross ?)

Sadly it seems fellow Breamer Thomas died soon afterwards;

1911 Westhoughton, Bolton District, Lancashire, England, United Kingdom
Household Role Sex Age Birthplace
Ellen Darby Head F 42 Hereford Lea, Herefordshire
Eva Darby Daughter F 18 Atherton, Lancashire
Alice Darby Daughter F 16 Atherton, Lancashire
Nelly Darby Daughter F 10 Atherton, Lancashire
Thomas Darby Son M 7 Atherton, Lancashire

I think this may be the record, with an incorrect transcription of age somewhere along the line - "64" should read "34" ??

I'm guessing Philip knew his landlord Thomas Darby from their time as youngsters in Bream ?

Struggling to find this particular Thomas DARBY in prior posts in this forum.

So it rather looks like Thomas Hubert Beach Darby is the "slightly" illegitimate son of William Frederick Beach and Mary Darby ?
