Thomas returned to Liverpool in 1766 where he remained until his death in 1781, his obituary describing him as “an eminent and worthy merchant”. He continued to supervise the Livorno partnership, being especially interested in the shipment of sculpture and paintings for aristocratic customers in Britain. His Liverpool shipping interests comprised trade to and from America and the West Indies as well as the Mediterranean, some of his imports, especially mahogany, being sold on from warehouses in Liverpool. Thomas was also a partner in a company importing glass beads from Venice for sale to slave merchants. Before he died he had arranged for the future marriage of his elder daughter Maria to her first cousin, Thomas, eldest son of William, the slave merchant.
