Thomas Throp (b. 1786) was sentenced to 'life' at York Assizes in 1826 - for burglary. From there he was transferred to the hulk 'Retribution' on the Thames, before heading out in September on a one-way cruise to Oz on board the 'Albion'. He arrived in NSW on 14th Feb 1827. 1828 NSW census showed him working for William Parsons at South Creek (Thomas Thorpe). South Creek would also appear to be a cattle-holding pound around this time (Trove search). That is all I am able to dig up on Thomas, using currently limited resources. What happened to him? Did he obtain his ticket of leave and settle in Australia? Did he marry? Also known as Thomas Thorp.
