Biography

"Thomas Bluett was born in 1819 and arrived in Wellington NZ in April 1841. After a few months he crossed over to Sydney and later to Hobart. He returned to London in 1844/5 via Hong Kong and Calcutta, only to be accidentally shot in 1846 by a teenage boy playing with a loaded gun in a crowded street."
