Thomas Crump in Australia
Thomas Crump lived in Victoria, Australia for 32 years before he died of a “Disease connected with the heart” and an Inquest was held on the 14 April 1874. He married Selina Wheeler in 1850, at that time there was no mention of Thomas having a previous marriage. On his death certificate however there is mention of a previous marriage “partiuclars of first marriage unknown”.
It is still unclear when Thomas came to Australia although it does appear that he was born in 1815 in Kent England, although we have been unable to find proof of this, and there has been some mention that he may have imigrated to Australia on MARQUIS OF HASTINGS arriving 04 02 1841 in Botany Bay, (SR NSW Film AL 2134) which has yet to be verified. [the AL code indicates that his name may have been found on an Agent's Immigration Lists, (lists of immigrants in private ships))
Thomas was a brickmaker, he lived and worked in an around Melbourne.
If anyone can offer any further information or suggestions as to where to head next in my quest for information I would most greatful.
