Thomas Brown was born about 1798 in England.

Thomas was sentenced to be transported to New South Wales for seven years; per Tottenham, departed Spithead, England, on 27th Mar 1818 and arrived Sydney on 14th Oct 1818.

On 27th July 1822, Thomas married daughter of former convicts, Mary Patfield, in St Phillip's Church of England, Sydney.[1]

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.[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 single Christian name. Are you able to help, please?
