Thomas Turner’s correct name was Thomas Ternouth.  He was the brother of the sculptor John Ternouth, but was transported for the term of his natural life having been convicted of stealing a horse at the Surrey Assizes.  Thomas too was a stonemason, his skill being used by Governor Macquarie on such buildings as the Macquarie Tower at South Head, St James’ Church, Phillip Street, and the Stables at Government House (now the Conservatorium of Music)
