Thomas Wallis I registered his first mark on 8th March 1758 as a large-worker. He entered other marks in 1763 and was known to be working at least until 1771 when Thomas Wallis II (his son) was apprenticed to him. Thomas Wallis I died some time between 1818 and 1822.

He was later registered as a Plate-worker. The tongs shown below are all superb examples of early Antique Georgian silver sugar tongs, dated at c1775 - 1780.
