Thomas Sedgwick [Unknown Sedgwick]
There are various reconstructions for this family. According to Thomas's descendants he is the son of Thomas Sedgwick and Mary Airey baptised in 1797 in Sedbergh. He is definitely in Leeming in 1841 and if the age given in the 1841 census is correct could be connected to the Patrick Brompton Sedgwicks.
Thomas Sedgwick and family arrived at Launceston, Tasamania, 4 April 1843 aboard the Barque "Branken Moor" from London (Plymouth) via Cork. He was an indentured farm servant.
A Matthew Sedgwick also emigrated who is believed to be Thomas' brother. When he and his wife died young, Thomas looked after his orphaned children..
