Turner, Thomas

Stonemason and builder who was transported for life in 1815. He is believed to have conceived the idea of robbing the Bank of Australia and organising the group who carried out the robbery, though his participation was never proved. He worked with Francis Greenway as a stonemason on St James Church and the Government House stables and received a pardon in 1842.
