    Re: "Earlier

    Possibly- but mostly it's just a comparative- one event came before another on Thursday.

    It refers to any time earlier on Thursday than another event mentioned.

    At 8pm on Thursday, he went to the cinema. Earlier on Thursday, he had gone to the supermarket.

    He went to the supermarket at some point on Thursday, before 8pm.
