Greenhill, Thomas Tress
Passenger on the Edward Lombe who was killed when the ship was wrecked in Sydney Harbour in 1834. He had a brother in Sydney, Stephen Greenhill. He was named in all reports as being a passenger and had made other trips to Tasmania and Sydney prior to this voyage, but is described in a legal document dated November 1834 (so prior to news of the wreck reaching the UK) that is held in the East Sussex Record Office in England, as being a mate on the Edward Lombe en route to New South Wales. A death notice in the Scottish newspaper, the Fife Herald, on 5 March 1835, identifies a Peter Greenhill, the eldest son of the late Mr Greenhill, of Redcastle Mains, Ross Shire, Scotland, as being lost in the wreck, but this presumably was a case of mistaken identity.
