A few details provided by Richard Meredith;

Thomas Henry Reynolds, born 1830, was an early convert to the Brethren at the encouragement of his father Thomas Reynolds Reynolds, and was a stalwart of the movement at Burford in the Cotswolds and in London. THR married Elizabeth Ann Rix of Thrandeston, Suffolk, in 1855. He died childless on 19 Feb 1930 leaving a will dated 12 Oct 1927 in which Mary Elizabeth, a daughter of his deceased brother Edward Robert Bradley Reynolds, was among the beneficiaries. This Mary Elizabeth was born c.1875, the fifth child of ERBR. She married Edward Raven, civil servant (CB 1919, 2nd Sec GPO 1919-1934) who was, in turn, the eldest son of Frederick Edward Raven (1837-1903).  Their eldest daughter Dorothy Mary Raven married James Basil Foster Earle in 1927 (according to an announcement in The Times).

The following anecdote may be of interest: Years ago, the Daily Mail wrote to the late T.H.Reynolds asking him if he would write for them 'the history of the Plymouth Brethren'. THR wrote back saying that they had two histories. a heavenly one and an earthly one. The heavenly one was known only to God, and so THR could not write that. The earthly one was not worth the paper it would be written on, so he would not write that either.
