In 1901 Thomas is living alone in Selbourne Villas Minehead and in 1911 he is living with his son Harold, who was a photographer in Minehead and became an early pioneer of the british cinema.
Biography of Harold Mease Lomas (c1873-1926) was a chemist-turned-amateur photographer of great skill, with a particular interest in photographing hunting scenes. Around 1902 he first approached Charles Urban with the idea of making hunting films along similar lines to his photographic studies. Of these, the recently rediscovered Hunting the Red Deer with the Devon and Somerset Staghounds, filmed by Lomas in 1904, is a brilliantly photographed and edited work, if appalling in its detail. Lomas filmed animal studies for Urban while managing the darkrooms of the Charles Urban Trading Company for a short while, and undertook three filming trips to British North Borneo in 1903, 1904 and 1908. He travelled widely as an independent filmmaker, made other 'sporting' films, and in 1914 wrote a technical guide to film studio work, Picture Play Photography. In 1920 he became cameraman for Adrian Brunel's Minerva Films, making comedy shorts that starred Leslie Howard, before joining British Instructional Films in 1921 and filming some of the famous Secrets of Nature series, alongside another former Urban cameraman, Percy Smith.
In 1911, his other son, John Arthur Mease Lomas is an artist living in Waldolf Chambers, Aldwych, London in 1911, with his wife Mary Christine who was also an artist and enameller. She was also an art critic. Harold married Jeanette Maud Ilsley in Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) her father, Joseph, was a minister.
John did some wonderful paintings of the Porlock area. He died in 1950 in Timberscombe aged 87. His wife died in 1938.
