Unwilling to accept his new occupation, Thomas enlisted as a privateer, and, after a short time at sea, returned to Britain in 1759 (Ayer, 1990, p.2).
In 1759, Thomas returned to Kent, established his own corset shop, and married Mary Lambert. However, the business collapsed soon, and Paine's pregnant wife died.
