Thomas Williams (d.1792)

THOMAS WILLIAMS was a convict who was buried in an unmarked grave at St. John’s Cemetery, Parramatta on 7 April 1792. His identity is not clear as there were two convicts with the same name who arrived in the colony prior to this burial date; Third Fleet convict THOMAS WILLIAMS per Britannia (1791) and THOMAS WILLIAMS per Pitt (1792). Given that this burial took place less than two months after the arrival of the Pitt, it is probable—though not certain—that the THOMAS WILLIAMS buried in April was the most recently arrived convict. Further research required.
