    History & Achievements :

    Thomas was the first detachment of the XIth Regiment to leave England for Hobart in January 1845 as the guard over 199 convicts. Sent on detachment in February 1846 to Adelaide. In June 1846, Thomas was convicted and sentenced to 3 months imprisonment for assaulting a policeman. He was released on the orders of the SA Lieutenant-Governor but spent more time the following year awaiting a court martial and undergoing a short sentence. Thomas finally deserted on 6 October 1848 in plain clothes, fleeing north with his young wife of 7 months to those newly pioneered areas where shepherds & labourers were in great demand & few questions were asked as to a person's background.
    Description. black hair, dark complexion, dark eyes, 5'6" , no distinguishing marks
    Married. Adelaide. Born
    Children. No record of birh registration for most of the children, probably because Thomas wanted to avoid officialdom & the possibility of arrest for desertion. Queen Victoria eventually granted immunity from prosecution for desertion.
