Thomas Brown was born about 1798.

Thomas was sentenced to be transported to New South Wales for seven years; per Tottenham, departed Spithead, England, on 27 Mar 1818 and arrived Sydney on 14 Oct 1818. By 1828, he was free by servitude and working as a brickmaker. The brickfields were on the site of today's Central Railway Station, Sydney.[1]

In 1822, Thomas married daughter of former convicts, Mary Patfield, in St Phillip's Church of England, Sydney.[2]

It is not yet known when or where he passed away.

There is much to learn about Thomas Brown, but it is not the easiest of surnames to research, especially with just the one first name. Can you help?
