The family changed its name to Thomas some time in the late 1800's when a marriage breakup or death occurred and the children of George and Matilda were adopted (fostered?) by a family by the name of Thomas in Sydney, NSW. I am trying to establish when the family left Spain for England then Australia" (from Dale Kerferd)
