Stealing carpenter’s tools. Left wife and four children behind in England.
Believe that this is also the Thomas Evans taken hostage by Chief District Constable Furlong, and forced to pilot the vessel “Independent” (belonging to his Master Charles Meredith), in search of bush rangers in 1834.
(This Thomas Evans was the only seaman/boatman in service to the crown in 1834).
