Thank you for that clue, but his parents were Thomas and Sarah, lived in Dickleburgh, and
his wife was Sarah Pearl. This shows his parents as Thomas and Mary, and does not mention
a wife (I realise the form doesn't leave a space for this.) We also have a death in
Norfolk in 1847 which also may be him. As his family definitely did not join him here, we
were thinking along the lines of his returning to his family. It's just that there are
no clues as to whether he ever left Australia.
Will follow that up. $30 for a death cert! And they complain about the price in UK
Is there any way of finding out where he was sent at the beginning of his time in NSW?
