Flaherty, Thomas (1790–?)

Thomas Flaherty was sentenced to life imprisonment. He arrived in Sydney in 1802 aboard the Atlas.

Contrary to what most family trees show he didn't die in November 1849. The Thomas Flaherty who died in 1849 was a convict who had arrived in Van Diemen's Land in 1847 and was fatally shot by a constable after absconding from his workplace.
