Thomas first married Elizabeth MASSEY 12 Mar 1812 at Marylebone, England.  Second married Rachel Martha WOODS 23 Jul 1814 at Shoreditch, England.  Third married Bridget MITCHELL 03.01.1815 at Liverpool, England.  Bridget brought charges against Thomas for being married to Elizabeth MASSEY at the time of her marriage (no mention was made of Bridget).  Thomas pleaded guilty (presumably to keep his name out of the newspapers)and was sentenced to 7 years transportation on 22.07.17 at the Old Bailey. Soon after arrival to Australia Thomas was appointed Assistant Surgeon at Castle Hill, a position he held until January 1819 when his employment was terminated.  During his time as Assistant Surgeon he employed female convict Jane MEREDITH as his housekeeper.  Thomas & Jane did not marry but produced 5 children (4 of whom survived into adulthood).  Not long after Thomas, Jane & the children moved to Warkworth Jane fell in love with a neighbour, John ROTTON (a free settler)and were married in 1827 leaving Thomas to fend for himself.  It appears that Thomas continued a loving relationship with his children.  Thomas sadly died at the very young age of 46 in 1836 at Warkworth, NSW.
