Burke Thumoth (flourished 1720-47)
On 27 August 1745 in Bristol, stated the Bristol Oracle, “For the BENEFIT of Mr. THUMOTH, Belonging to his Majesty’s First Regiment of Foot Guards,” a concert was held at Castiglione’s Long Room. Thumoth played the German flute [i.e. transverse flute] and offered, after the concert, “several favourite Scots and Irish Airs…”. Thumoth seems to have spent the rest of his career at Bristol. The London Stage cites a newspaper report on 9 February I747 reporting the death of Burk Thumoth, at Bristol, “A few days since.” He was “well known for his excellent manner of performing on the German Flute.”
