Mapmaker:

Thomas Woore (1804-1878), naval officer, surveyor and pastoralist, was born on 29 January 1804 at Londonderry, Ireland. In 1829 Woore joined the Zebra, based in India, in which he first visited Sydney. In the Crocodile in 1831, he was promoted to lieutenant and joined the Alligator which was operating out of Sydney in 1832. At the end of 1834 he resigned because of ill health. On 1 January 1835 in the Scots Church, Sydney, he married Mary, daughter of John Dickson and in February they left for Britain. Woore returned to New South Wales in 1839, was made a magistrate and bought a station, Pomeroy near Goulburn, where he built a charming house and became a leading pastoralist.
