    Notes 
    • Thomas had been transported in 1828 on the ‘Phoenix’ for his crimes. From records which included his Certificate of Freedom in 1834, he was convicted of Highway Robbery at the Lincoln Assizes 28 July 1827. His description was 5 feet 5 inches tall with dark ruddy complexion, dark brown hair, and light hazel eyes. We know these facts because the authorities of the time needed full description of any felons who absconded.
      Thomas Crossley was tried on July 28 1827 in Lincoln, England Convict record : AO NSW Ref-4/4013 page 9 COD Reel 398 Thomas Crossley aged 23 can read, protestant, batchelor, navigator and labourer.

Sources : Title: Registry BDM - index Repository Call number Media : Electronic Page : Ref V1840416 24B/1840
      Thomas' death certificate states his mother was Hannah. This does not seem the case unless Mary Bandy had a second name
      Marriage : With the consent of Ann's parents and Governor.
      Convict banns were posted for the marriage of Thomas Crossley and Ann Bailey
      Thomas also used Henry as a first name
      The burial date on the graves is different than the death date here (29/12/1874 aged 74.8)
