The son of Sarah Jane Hull (1876-) — later, having married John Henry Thomas (1870-) in 1896, she became Sarah Jane Thomas — Thomas Stanley Hull (later known as "Stanley Thomas") was born in Tasmania on 9 May 1892.
He was married to Ethel Mary Murnane (-1982).
Thomas first played for Geelong in 1915. He did not play in 1916; however, from 1917 to 1925 he was a regular member of Geelong's defence.
He only played one finals match in his career: the Semi Final against Fitzroy, at the MCG, on September 1923.
His career ended when he was given a 26-game suspension (the remainder of 1925 and all of 1926) for escalating an all-in brawl that involved players and team officials in Geelong's controversial 1 August 1925 match against North Melbourne.
