On 17.12.1841 when Thomas applied (as a convict) to marry Julia, he was 29, she 16.

O'Donaghue conducted a muster in board on the 5th March, and recorded that there were 215 convicts on board; that 3 had been put ashore because of sickness, and that 2 had died at sea. In a list of the convicts aboard the "Parmelia" drawn up at about this time (Bound Indents AO Fiche No.689) - Thomas Flynn (F) (1812-1880) was described as follows :-

The tombstone above the grave of Thomas and his wife Julia stands about 9 feet high and remains one of the most imposing in the Bungendore Cemetery. It is a fitting memorial to a couple that progressed through adversity to find themselves - with their offspring - being the pioneers of an idyllic little patch in the midst of the harsh and unforgiving Australian bush.
