  General Notes:

Keith Shrimpton where it is noted:
Page 337 The Pragmatic Pioneers
In 1792 Thomas Crump, a Whitesmith by trade, was living in King's Bench Walk, St.George's Fields, London, in considerable style. He had a live-in lady, love and also a servant by the name of Mary Stephens. Quite an achievement for a young man of twenty-years of age who professed to be a mere tradesman. Unfortunately the good life was about to end; Edward Edington arrived at his front door with a Search Warrant. Thomas had apparently been observed when he, Carroty Bob and Philip Fisher paid a little visit to the residence of Mrs Sarah Thompson whose premises he had entered with a duplicate key during her absence. He was charged at the Old Bailey September Sessions 1792 with stealing twenty eight Guineas, two silver table spoons value six Shillings, three silver tea spoons value six Shillings, one silver milk pot value fifteen Shillings, a pair of silver tea tongs value six Shillings and two gowns, all the property of Sarah Thompson. The verdict guilty, the sentence, death. Thomas however was far from finished, his sentence was commuted to life imprisonment and transportation, and so he embarked on the ship Surprise which, anchored in Port Jackson on 25th October 1794.


Thomas married Mary (convict) Johnson. (Mary (convict) Johnson was born circa 1790 and died in 1848.)


Thomas next married Mary (convict) Harrison, daughter of Unknown and Elizabeth Harrison, on 18 Mar 1797 in St Phillips C of E, Sydney, NSW Australia. (Mary (convict) Harrison was born circa 1770.)
