THOMAS SANDERS VIA CATHY GAINGE
Cathy Gainge Further to what Lynne has said: Thomas the third fleeter was convicted in Essex but we don’t have his birthplace. When he married, his children were given the same names as our William’s grandfather’s siblings. He died 3 years before William and Mary Ann arrived and they stayed with his son Thomas when they arrived. Thomas (convict) had a grandson, John Tebbutt, astronomer, who appeared on the $100 note and I think Uncle Rex looked a little like him.
