bullet  General Notes:

Thomas, a miner from Somerset England, aged 20, was tried in the Somerset Assizes on the 31st March 1814 for "taking rabbits out of a warren". He was sentenced to Transportation for 7 years, arriving as a convict in the Colony on the Indefatigable on the 25th April 1815.

Thomas worked as a Stone Mason in the colony and is believed to have undertaken some fine work for Governor Macquarie. He is said to have built the first attached houses in the colony in the early 1920's. They exist to this day in Kent Street in The Rocks and are known as "Glovers Cottages". He owned about 70 acres of land and a few hotels, houses and land in The Rocks area. He was recorded as a Publican on his daughter Mary Anne's death certificate.

Thomas was ill for a number of years after hitting his head severely from a horse fall. He suffered from delerium, a condition apparently exacerbated by heavy drinking. In 1835 he severely assaulted his wife's maid and in 1836 during a severe delerium he cut his own throat.

bullet  Marriage Notes:

According to one researcher, the ceremony was performed by William Cowper. Witnesses were Alexander Campbell and Mary Leighton. I have a copy of a CofE Marriage Certificate on which there is no Minister named.
