Thomas is my great great grandfather. Thomas was baptised Thomas HONERSTONE 6 Oct 1811, at Christ Church, Spitalfields - his year of birth misrecorded in the register as 1819. He was tried at the Old Bailey for theft and housebreaking, 30th June, 1831 (The full transcript is online) He stole of 50 yards of silk and silk velvet from a dwelling house/shop Edward-street, Bethnal-green.  Originally sentenced to death, he was given life and transported to Australia after spending a short time on the Prison Hulk ‘Hardy’ at Portsmouth.
DESCRIPTION, 5’ 4 1/2" tall, Ruddy complexion, dark brown hair, light hazel eyes.
His wife and two children did not join him in Australia. On the 3rd February, 1845, Thomas married my great great grandmother, Harriet Jeffery, a girl not quite 16 years old (from Kent). On that same day they baptised the first of their sixteen children.  Thomas did not seek permission to marry as far as I can see - he did not get his pardon until 1850.
Thomas was recorded as a Tiler or Filer in his convict records. He was a ‘gentleman’ when he died. When my great grandmother was born his occupation was given as a squatter.

Thomas’s death certificate does not give a cause of death, nor had he any recorded illness or a medical attendant. An inquest was deemed unnecessary.
He has a handsome headstone in the Condobolin Cemetery.

Pardoned 1850. His wife and two children did not join him in Australia.
In 1845 he married my great grandmother, Harriet Jeffery, a lass not yet 16 years old. They baptised the first of their 16 children that same day. The ceremonies were performed by an itinerant minister and Thomas does not appear to have bothered seeking permission to marry.
