12. THOMAS6 GILBERT (JOHN5, THOMAS4, WILLIAM3, WILLIAM2, JOHN1) was born 03 Apr 1818 in Beckley Sussex England, and died 30 Nov 1889 in Hamilton NSW Australia. He married MARY ANNE BULL 31 Jan 1837 in Ashford Kent England, daughter of JOHN BULL and SARAH WELLER. She was born 10 Oct 1819 in Beckley Sussex England, and died 20 Oct 1900 in Hamilton NSW Australia.

Notes for THOMAS GILBERT:
Thomas, his wife Mary and eldest child Owen immigrated as Bounty Assisted passengers with his parents on the "Roxburgh Castle" . Owen died on the voyage over and later on they traveled to Rotorua New Zealand and lived near the pink and white terraces which were destroyed in a volcanic eruption of Mt. Tarawera on 10-6-1886. They then went to Tasmania and settled at Oatlands named by Governor Macquarrie in 1821.
They named their second child born in Tasmania on 13-9-1844 after Port Arthur, grandfather John, his father Thomas, their best friend Langtry and the town Oatlands. So was christened Arthur John Thomas Langtry Oatlands GILBERT.
A daughter was born two years later named Clara Harriet GILBERT 12-3-1847. The local census 1-1-1848 showed the family living at Queen Anne Street Oatlands in a brick dwelling and that they were Wesleyan Methodists. Thomas worked as a Goal Warder but his trade was watch and clock maker. Convicts were constructing a road from George Town to Hobart and a Goal for the chain gang was constructed at Oatlands and then extended to take on female convicts.
By may 1849 the family had moved to Raymond Terrace NSW where Thomas worked as a postman. They then moved to Stroud and then to Rosenthal on the Myall River where Thomas acquired land and built a sawmill and had a boat "S.S. MYALL" christened by his daughter Grace to transport timber along the coast of NSW.
Late in life he moved to Newcastle and opened a "Clock Makers" shop. He had a house at Beaumont Street Hamilton where both Thomas and Mary died and were then burried at Sandgate. They had 9 children altogether.


Notes for MARY ANNE BULL:
Lived Beaumont Street Hamilton.
