P. France & Co. in their 1850 book “Songs of the Bards of the Tyne gives three works “Canny Newcastle Again””, “Stream of a Thousand Fallen Adieu”, (both attributed to T. Oliver), and “Yon Orb is Sinking” (attributed to Thomas Oliver).

None of these three songs are written in the Geordie dialect, although they are written about Newcastle, Northumberland and North East England.

Nothing more appears to be known of this person, or his life or work.
