Page 353 Book 10 of the Assisted Immigrants from the UK 1839-1871 lists Thomas as a carpenter from Northumberland, age 39, who could read and write and was going to Geelong on his own account.
Soon after arriving in Geelong they travelled to Ballarat - probably walking.
In 1854, the same year they arrived, Ann died, Death Certificate No 5725.
The later generations lived on a block at the corner of Sherrard and Chislom Streets, Black Hill Ballarat. There was a small shed built on this block and it is probable that this is where Thomas lived.
