Tom Norman Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018Thomas Noakes, later known as Tom Norman, (7 May 1860–24 August 1930) was an English businessman and showman. He started his working life as a butcher in Sussex and at 17 moved to London. After viewing an exhibition of an "Electric Lady" next door to his place of work, he went into business with the lady's manager and began his career as a showman of human oddities. He quickly became successful, for his patter as much as his exhibits, and was called the 'Silver King' by American showman P. T. Barnum.In 1884, he took over management of Joseph Merrick, otherwise known as the 'Elephant Man' and exhibited him for a few weeks until police closed down the show. Merrick later went to live at the London Hospital under the care of Sir Frederick Treves. In Treves' 1923 memoirs, he portrayed Norman as a cruel drunk who ruthlessly exploited his acts. Norman refuted this characterisation and said that he provided Merrick (and his other "freaks") with a means of making money independently. Norman continued a successful career as a showman and later became an auctioneer of novelty shows and circuses. He had ten children, five of whom followed in his professional footsteps, and he died in Croydon in 1930.
