Thomas Wooster Convicted of Theft (1828), Transported and Killed by a Bull (1844)
Thomas Wooster Convicted of Theft (1828), Transported and Killed by a Bull (1844)
Thomas Wooster was accused, along with John Munday and William Dimmock of breaking into the house of Sarah Parsons at Grendon Underwood and stealing money and goods to the value of twenty-four pounds.


He was subsequently convicted and transported for life to Australia.


Transportation Register. Note his co-defendant William Dimmock is the next name on this list.


Thomas also appears on a Prison record, where more details are found.


Thomas married Mary Gray in Melbourne, Victoria and his name is spelled variously as Wooster and Worster; his widow married as Woster and his three children grew up always spelled Worcester.


In 1844 he was killed by a bull and on his gravestone his age is given as 33 and does not tally with the other evidence. Could this have been a mistake by the stone mason, 33 instead of 38?


Thomas was working from the River Murray area - Wahgunyah at a property called "The Pelican".


His two sons became the pioneers of Omeo and Benambra (Gippsland Alps area) - still cattlemen. Same with most of the next generation - then two Worcester brothers became gynaecologists (plus their cousins who were regularly locked up !!)


We have plenty of information about him but who is he? There doesn't appear to be a good fit on the GWT.

Transcript of Postcard From Australia to the Bell Inn, Stoke Mandeville
Postcard found in the possessions of EE Clipson
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Addressed to Mr Arthur Wooster, Bell Inn, Stoke Mandeville, Aylesbury, Bucks, England.
Postcard of Native Bullock Cart, Ceylon and posted in Australia.

Dear Arthur and Ede,
We are getting near our destination now. This is a typical picture of what we saw in Ceylon, had a 3 hour drive round the different native villages. They have oxen to draw the carts about here, horses in the carriages. There were in some parts, coach painters, Builders yards and Smiths shops, in fact we could have got a job ourselves, as they wanted carpenters, it was posted up on the gates, did not think anything about it as it is such a hot climate. There is a large Liptons tea factory. Mostly natives work there. The people are only half dressed, but it is a lovely place. Hope you are keeping well. We are A1, it has been very hot through the tropics. We are 9 days between Colombo and Freemantle, nothing but water did not even see another boat. Love to all Yours Jim.

William Henry Worster to Wooster
William Henry Worster to Wooster
William later changed his name to "Wooster" to disassociate from the
sauce maker. William attended St John's Church of England school and also worked
with his father on the Sydney to Granville railway line at aged 12, later as dobbin
driver, and became a noted schoolmaster and an authority on astronomy, microscopy,
and other studies that he lectured on.
William lived on the estate of John Lackey clearing and helping supply billets for the railway engines. In
1861 he worked some years whip making, probably at Hodgson's factory along with his sister Susannah. He
also spent two years studying for the ministry in the Church of Christ, but returned to teaching, and
continued preaching for sixty years. William opened a free
night school for children after becoming a public school teacher and lodged with Mr.Jas. Murray, teacher at
the Parramatta Public School.
