Thomas Jones had been convicted three times before for crimes prior to the conviction (for stealing mill brasses) that resulted in his transportation at 17 years of age.  It was noted on his goal report that he ‘had very bad habits, character and connections’.

In 1843, he completed his probation and was living in the residence of trustees of the late J Brumby of Norfolk Plains.  Over the next 2 years he commits offences of insolence and misconduct for which he is punished.  In 1843 he fathered a child with Ann Agnew (another convict in Norfolk Plains), is granted permission to marry and is granted freedom by servitude.

In 1851 they transfer to Victoria.  Some 6 months later, he is killed in a cart accident.
