Thomas was transported for stealing an iron poker. He was charged with cutting and wounding his wife Jane in 1854 at Table Cape. He had been drinking at the time and it all seemed it was over her relationship with another man who lived on the premises. He was found guilty and executed at Launceston 28\7\1854.
