On Genforum you (at least I think it is you!) say that:
Thomas William Coxhead was transported to Australia under the name Williams.
Thomas Jnr's Death Cert shows his father's name as Jesse & he was a Cobmill Maker in London.
Sorry for all the questions!

What I still don't follow is how you know that he is the same person as the Thomas Williams in Shoalhaven. Is there a document somewhere which shows that he changed his name?
Also, how do you know that Thomas Coxhead the convict is the same as the Thomas William Coxhead christened in Dulwich in 1819?
I'm not doubting your word, just trying to understand how the connections were made.

My sincere apologies for not replying sooner & much thanks to those that replied re Thomas. The Death Cert for Thomas shows that his father was Jessie & mother unknown. It also shows he was a Cobbmill Maker. The BC for the Thomas born at Dulwich College shows Thomas Snr worked on the London Docks. They had 2 Thomas Coxhead who workeds who worked there but one was much later. His DC shows he was born in Surrey. Another shows his father as Thomas & mother Charlotte Bean. These were had written entries & presumably entered on info from his children. He was transported on the Roslin Castle under the name of Thomas Coxhead. It took me ages to trace him & it was only after a phone call to the Illawarra FHS that I found that their records showed that he used the name Thomas Williams. There was no legal change of name. I have info supplied by another descendant of him which cannot be attached. If any one was interested in chasing this further a normal email to Grec AT bigpond DOT com will then allow me to attach the info.
Again thanks & apologies.
