Thomas may have been born in Ireland in 1794 and died in NSW 7 Jun 1872
Hannah born c. 1801 in England and died 26 Nov 1881 NSW - her parents were Henry Russell and Mary Craddock
Dave I have sent you over 2 interesting links that I have found about Thomas, it also mentions Hannah Russell and her father.

4483/1888 PARKER FRANK J - MOORE RHODA ELIZABETH - CENTRAL CUMBERLAND * 15 Feb 1888

CofE but not in the Sydney CofE set.

THE MARRIAGE of Mr. Frank John Parker, only son of the late John Parker, of Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, England, with Miss Lizzie Moore, eldest daughter of Mr. Samuel James Moore, of Myrtle Villa, Dural, took place on the 15th February, at St. Jude's Church, Dural; the rite being performed by the Rev. Frank R. Elder. ...
 
Seems Frank J Parker arrived 1886 or 1887.


Another at St. Jude's but also not in the CofE set.

Evening News (Sydney, NSW) - Mon 19 Jan 1914 p.1
SOCIAL ITEMS.
WEDDINGS.
At St. Jude's Church, Dural, Augustus, third son of the late Mr. J. Fletcher, of Rockdale (late of Scotland), was married to May, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F. J. Parker, of 'Lynwood' Dural. The Rev. J. W. Roberts officiated. The bridesmaids were Misses Lily Parker, Beatrice Booth and Rosa Heffernan. Mr. Fred. Short acted as best man and Mr. Gordon Walker and Mr. W. Moore as groomsmen.
 
No but you found a piece missing from the Australian newspaper story saying he had been in Australia 18 months, hence 1886 or 1887.

I looked in Tewkesbury in 1881 but didn't find him as a policeman.

Yes Kate.

The other policeman was Mallard who also joined the police in NSW. I've not spent much time so far on Mallard.

Not Assisted to NSW.
 
Looks like it Geoff.

Any date when Charles joined NSW Police?

Looks like Unassisted arrival.

Dave
 
Any date when Charles joined NSW Police?

This must be close, he is listed as a Probationary Constable as opposed to ordinary or First Class. Also narrows down his arrival to 1881-1884

New South Wales, Australia, Police Gazettes, 1854-1930
Constable Charles Mallard
Event Place: New South Wales, Australia
Event Type: Police Business

Thanks Geoff.

Feb 1888 marriage and the other clipping says they had left England by about 18 months. So now do we assume they travelled together?

No notice for Mallard-Bonner marriage.
