Biographical/Historical note(s):         Thomas Chapman was a merchant and trader of Southwark, London. He promoted and supported the seal fur trade industry, but due to unfair competition he was reduced to bankruptcy and imprisoned. Upon his release, and supported by Sir Joseph Banks, he appealed to the Board of Trade for relief and restitution. In 1814 they approved his case and awarded him 100 pounds, but this was insufficient for his needs. Further appeals to Parliament were prevented by the death in 1817 of his Board of Trade adviser, George Rose. Being once more bankrupt, Chapman printed his case and received minor assistance from the Bishop of Durham and several staff.

  1. I am a descendant of Black Ned Tomlins who had 3 Children to a Maori woman in New Zealand 3 Great Grandfather … 2 daughters an 1 son … I come on the lineage of his first oldest daughter .. I will endeavor to follow our lineage through the Australian historian …

    • Hello would this be the same Ned Tomlins who sailed on the schooner ‘Industry’ under the atrocious Captain Blogg? I’m keen to confirm details of this story (Dunderdale) i.e. was Ned hanged with other crew Members around 1835 at Hokianga N Z. Feel free to drop me a line, thank you. John

      • Regarding the above post, I have just discovered the details concerning Ned Tomlins (much later) death and apologize to all for the error.
