Woore, Thomas

Naval officer, surveyor and pastoralist who worked on his own surveying possibilities for the proposed railway line put forward by the Sydney Tramroad and Railway Company, later Sydney Railway Company. Despite his efforts, he was refused payment for his work and was widely criticised by the company. In 1858, he requested compensation from the government for his work as they were using his plans, but he was unsuccessful.
