- Thomas Dennard (1803-1880) was a member of The Aldington Gang - a gang of smugglers that operated on the Romney Marshes which is a flat featureless expanse in Kent opposite France. The Dennards were also related to the Gang leader George Ransley.
In 1826 the whole gang was captured and transported to Tasmania aboard "The Governor Ready". Thomas ended up working for the Archer family. In TAS he met his wife, Ellen McCabe (a free settler) and had a number of children in Australia.
As a Transportee he was forbidden to return to the UK.
After receiving his ticket of leave Thomas went to the mainland firstly to Melbourne and died in Ballarat in 1880.
