I am certain this Thomas Harrison from Derbyshire is my great grandfather. I have been checking the census’s for years trying to find him to no avail.His father John Harrison my gt gt grandfather was transported to Van Diemans land in 1822 from Derbyshire England for stealing a pound of flour so maybe Thomas thought he might just get to see his father. Thomas married at least 3 times his last wife being Victoria - my gt grandmother.  Any descendants out there?
