- Thomas Brown Wylly was born 1794 in Nassau, Bahamas, the son of William Wylly and Matilda (or Martha) Mathews.
from a story of Thomas Brown - «i»By a happy coincidence, William Wylly, captain in the King's Rangers and attorney general of the Bahamas, was appointed chief justice of St Vincent in 1822. The two old soldiers [Thomas Brown and William Wylly] had much to talk about; their last campaign in Georgia, the Florida transition, the political battle against Dunmore in the Bahamas. Brown could acquaint Wylly with his own problems with the current government of St Vincent, and Wylly might have told Brown about the antislavery campaign in the Bahamas he waged. The colonel must have been glittered that Wylly had done him the honor of naming his first son Thomas Brown Wylly.«/i»
