  • Notes 
    • He was a Lieutenant in HM Regiment of Infantry.
      He was very attracted to "Nant Gwylan" as he most likely visited there with his father who owned the property which he leased in Wales, and when on holidays whilst doing his military training. Of interest, he sold his commission on coming to Australia and was appointed Police Magistrate. He also managed "Cunningham Plains" and later bought an adjoining station and named it "Nant Gwylan".

      Thomas was the son of a British naval surgeon, who had settled at St. Heliere, on the island of Jersey some time before he was born. Thomas became a military officer and served with H.M. 20th Foot, East Devonshire Regiment before selling his commission and migrating with his family to New South Wales. His intention on arriving in N.S.W. was to become a Grazier and he settled on a property at Murrumburrah. Thomas became a Police Magistrate in New South Wales, possibly because farming was not proving as profitable as he would have liked.
