Captain Sir Tom captured all of our hearts last year when he walked laps of his garden to mark his 100th birthday – and raised a staggering £38.9 million for NHS charities.

To mark what would have been his 101st birthday, we embarked on a 230 year journey, delving into his family history. Our research took in three generations – going back to the birth of Captain Sir Tom’s great, great grandparents in the 1790s!

The historical family tree and the accompanying data, together with money raised by Finders International for Captain Sir Tom’s charity, have been sent to his daughter.

“We wanted to do something special for what would have been Captain Tom’s 101st birthday so we thought we’d use our research resources, normally used to trace heirs to unclaimed estates, to develop a historical family tree on our national treasure.” –  Danny Curran, MD Finders International
