Thomas Lynde was the husband of Rachel Lynde.


Early life

Thomas Lynde was born probably in 1810s in Avonlea, Prince Edward Island, to Mr. and Mrs. Lynde. He attended Avonlea school at the age of six.


Thomas married Rachel Lynde, who was a busy, boisterous and very tenderhearted woman. Together, they had twelve children. Rachel took good care of her husband, even if she was bossy. Their youngest son, eight years prior to Anne of Avonlea, had gone west. His loving parents took a lease on the farm in order to give him a start out there. This would eventually impact Rachel a great deal.

Thomas grew very sick, and the doctor's bill had to be paid. Rachel wondered what she would do without her husband.


The cause of Thomas's death is unknown. He died during Anne of Avonlea. His last words were to his wife. "You've always been a good wife to me, Rachel." She mourned the loss of her husband greatly. Eventually, she moved in with the Cuthberts because she could not keep her house.


Thomas  was very quiet and was made to be ruled, as Marilla Cuthbert said. He had "no backbone", so his mother and then Rachel ruled him well.
