Thomas Edward Nott was born at Stamford, Lincoln,UK. to a wealthy and old family.  His father died when he was eight years old.  His mother Mary Nott remarried. It appears Thomas was denied his rightful inheritance from his father Edward Nott when he attained the age of 21. In 1815 he was convicted of stealing from his own rented property in London although it may be that he was set up by a spurned lover.  From early January 1815 till his departure to New South Wales on the ‘Elizabeth’ in 1816 Thomas was a tutor on the Portland Hulk. From 1817-1820 he was assistant teacher at Sydney Public School with Mr.Thomas Taber.  He opened his own academy in 1820 at 44 Castlereagh St. Moves academy to 71 Pitt St in 1821. Cert. of Freedom 11 Jan 1822. Moves academy to George St. Parramatta 1822-23. Marries Charity Evans a teacher at Female Orphan School P’matta 31 August 1823. Seven sons are born; four survive into adulthood.  Thomas is buried at St. John’s Cemetery Parramatta (no marker/headstone)
