From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

  Thomas
     twin, one of the twelve (Matt. 10:3; Mark 3:18, etc.). He was
     also called Didymus (John 11:16; 20:24), which is the Greek
     equivalent of the Hebrew name. All we know regarding him is
     recorded in the fourth Gospel (John 11:15, 16; 14:4, 5; 20:24,
     25, 26-29). From the circumstance that in the lists of the
     apostles he is always mentioned along with Matthew, who was the
     son of Alphaeus (Mark 3:18), and that these two are always
     followed by James, who was also the son of Alphaeus, it has been
     supposed that these three, Matthew, Thomas, and James, were
     brothers.
     

From Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary (late 1800's) :

  Thomas, a twin
