Tom married Elizabeth Ringer in 1877. She was born in 1850 in Hollington, Derbyshire, daughter of Robert Ringer, who was born in Holkham, Norfolk in 1811, and Jane Morley, who was born in Hollington in 1820. Robert Ringer’s family came from Wells next the Sea, also the home of many Powditch family members, including the husband of Mary Thomason Tunaley. Jane Morley and Paul's grandmother Mary Morley had the same ancestor – Hanson Morley 1724 - 1823. The Ringer family moved from the country to the town before 1861.

Very little is known about Tom except that his nickname was “Tommy Muck” - probably as a result of his occupation. Family anecdotes suggest he was a road sweeper and wore a top hat whilst at work on the streets of Derby. The census of 1901 shows the family living in Stockbrook Street, Derby.
