Thomas Johnson was originally known as Thomas Wilbraham Johnson. His criminal record is listed in the records of the Old Bailey. My ancestor Martin Willson of Whitechapel appeared for him and joined a petition to have his death sentence commuted to transportation for life. He appears to have served his sentence in the Goulburn district.
