THOMAS BEAUMONT was born about 1586 in England, and died there on 9 Dec 1646. He married Jennet Stafford, a Yorkshire girl, (born about 1590) in 1605. Thomas resided in Colne Bridge and Tibnether in Kirkheaton; and was an officer in the Dutch Service.spouse: >Stafford, Jennet (>1586 - )
A Thomas M. Beaumont (b., 1824) has been located who married Martha J. (unknown) whose daughter was born 26 Jan 1865, in Rocky Hill, CT. (He has not been verified as the same Thomas in this record, but this appears logical due to the date and location.)spouse: >
WILLIAM BEAUMONT was born about 1545 in England, and died there in 1621. He married Rosamond Beaumont (a 5th cousin, once removed) in 1567.spouse: >Beaumont, Rosamond (>1552 - 1621)
WILLIAM BEAUMONT, the elder of the two brothers, was of Salem in 1637, and probably somewhat earlier. At that time Salem, though only eleven years old, was the oldest settlement in the Massachusetts Bay Colony, older even than Charlestown and Boston and possibly offered more substantial opportunity to the colonist. The stay of William Beaumont at Salem was, however, not of long duration; marrying Lydia Danforth, he settled at Saybrook - the fort at the mouth of the Connecticut River, overlooking the broad waters of Long Island Sound, and then just united to the Connecticut government.spouse: >Danforth, Lydia (1625 - 1686)
It is believed that William Beaumont (b. 1608) retained the Beaumont name and likely originated the Beaumont name in America. His brother John Beaumont (abt. 1612-1647) or his son John Beaumont (1644-1684) probably shortened the name to Bement and therefore originated the Bement name in America.
In 1881, a memorial stone was placed over the graves of his great-grandson, William Beaumont (1728-1812) and his wife Sarah (Everitt) Beaumont (1721-1813) in the Scoville Cemetery, Lebanon, Connecticut by their great -grandsons, Colonel Leonard Bacon, and Thomas Thatcher, which recites the ancestry of William Beaumont from William Beaumont of Saybrooke, Nicholas Danforth of Cambridge, Massachusetts, and the Rev. Thomas Buckingham.

He then practiced as a consulting engineer at Chicago until at least 1913.spouse: >Henderson, Eva (~1862 - >1912)
Apart from the activities of his business life he was widely known in engineering circles at Chicago. He was prominently identified with the Western Society of Engineers, being second vice president thereof, and first vice president in 1913. On three occasions he received the Chanute Medal of that Society for meritorious papers on engineering subjects that he delivered before it. He was also connected with the work of the University of Illinois as a member of the Advisory Committee on Fuel Testing at the Engineering Experiment Station conducted at the University, and was an occasional lecturer there. He also was a member of the committee on the fuel testing of the American Society for Testing Materials; one of the organizers of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers; chairman of a Committee on Investigation relative to Harbor Development at Chicago; at one time chairman of the Engineering Sub-Division of the Chicago Association of Commerce, and while a member of that Association was one of a Committee appointed to report upon the feasibility of the Electrification of Chicago Railway Terminals.

He was also a consulting engineer to the Chicago Smoke Abatement Commission; chairman of a committee formed to urge the establishment of a College of Mines at the University of Illinois; chairman of a Coroner's Jury, in 1909, to probe the cause of death of fifty-nine men by fire on a crib structure located 1 1/2 miles out on Lake Michigan in connection with a water tunnel construction; which accident was due to the imperfect handling of dynamite, and resulted in the establishment by the Chicago City Councils of a Commission to which he was appointed Chairman, to formulate methods for the proper handling of dynamite, and legislation for its enforcement.
Many scholarly papers were prepared and delivered by him before Engineering and Scientific Societies, among which the more prominent perhaps are: The Suppression of Smoke; The Efficiency of Furnaces and Steam Boilers; Chemical and Physical Characteristics of Coal, and in 1909, the first complete report on the Illinois Coal fields.
