1853: The Board of Education voiced an objection to
the application of ticket-of-leave man Thomas Ensor (convict No.76), for the vacant position of assistant schoolmaster at Fremantle Government School. It was considered that such an engagement would be injurious to the school, as the applicant was a ticket-of-leave holder. The Board stated:
[We] are more particularly led to this conclusion having received a letter from Mr Wright, the schoolmaster, stating that he believes some of the scholars would be removed from the school were Mr Ensor appointed assistant schoolmaster.

1854-55: Clerk at the Steward’s Office Convict Establishment, Fremantle.
