From on Friday, 15 October, 2010

Hello Elizabeth
I have been researching my family tree for many many years and I come back to the dead ends every now and again to see if I can make a break through. Thomas Scarrott has been one of those dead ends. He is in the 1841 census with his wife and children and then he disappears. He was born in 1816, christened in 1817 and he was a bellows maker. I found your web pages by luck and the fact that he was a bellows maker really encouraged me to think that it was indeed him along with the area and his date of birth. I had not thought of looking for him overseas.
I am really interested in finding out what happened to him and if he stayed in Australia or whether he returned to England after his sentence. His wife only reappears in 1871 without Thomas although I tend to think she may have stayed in the UK as my g grandmother (his firstborn) was married in 1852.
