  • Notes 
    • He was a captain in the Royal Artillery, and a justice of the peace for Surrey.

      "Sir Thomas Dyer resided chiefly at Brompton Hall, Middlesex, which he inherited from the Hallidays in the reign of George IV. It was a fine old Elizabethan house, panelled throughout with oak, containing secret rooms and passages, one leading to the Thames, surrounded by five acres of garden, and approached by a drive through immense iron gates up an avenue of elms. The South Kensington and Brompton Station on the Underground Railway now occupies the site, which Sir Thomas Swinnerton Dyer was obliged by the Railway Act of Parliament to sell greatly below its value. 'Dyerhaven,' Uckfield, Sussex, Sir Thomas built when Brompton Hall was demolished. Westcroft Park, Chobham, and 14 Redcliffe Square were his other residences." [E. H. Martin, citation details below.]
