Might the first Thomas have died, so the named the next boy born to them
Thomas? If the first one had died in India perhaps there was no record.
Live and learn, had no idea that people were apprenticed to make stays
(corsets). Was very surprised to see so much on the web about staymakers.
Hope this helps.

Subject: [LON] PETER SKINNER, staymaker
I am searching for a PETER SKINNER of Westminster, whose son JACOB
was an apprenticed goldsmith, as was his grandson, KEVENHULLER.
Peter is listed in Jacob's apprenticeship as a staymaker. I need to
find out as to what liveried company the staymakers belonged. I
would be grateful if anyone might be able to help me with information
on Peter or on the staymakers.
As to KEVENHULLER SKINNER I am a bit confused. I traced him to
Canterbury, where he had a son Thomas, who moved to India. I
confirmed that from Canterbury, yet on the LDS site I have discovered
another earlier Thomas, born to Kevenhuller and his wife. Because the
name is so unusual, I presume that the two Kevenhullers are the same
person. I wonder if anyone might be able to shed light on this?
