There was a Thomas Knowles mayor of Wigan 1864 and 1865, and in the 1869 directory he's listed at living at The Platts,Ince. There a bit in Hansard about his political life Here

I 've also just download a pdf from the University of California which contains "a memoir of the Late Thomas Knowles and a report of the funeral service preached by Canon Fergie" available Here click on "See other formats"

There's also a record in the New York Times of "Titled Visitors to Albany" pdf download Here click on view full article

Not bad for a quick google! There's loads about his work life as you say . . . hope this helps a wee bit!
