christened 19th April 1801 at Send And Ripley, Surrey, England.  Sentenced at Guildford, along with his brother John (christened 17 Feb 1805 and died 4 Apr 1859).  William married to Ann Nickolls on 10 Sep 1822 and had two children (George c.30 Mar 1823 at Ockham and Henry born about 1827).  After his transportation Ann moved to Staines and there used the surname BAMBLETT instead of the original BAMLETT (although usage is inconsistent, the original Surrey family going back to early 1500s were BAMLETT). 

William remarried in 1846 in Australia, to Helen Kelly and they had two children - Jane in 1849 and Elizabeth Mary in 1858 (his mother was Elizabeth Turrell).  There are surviving branches of descendants in both the UK and Australia.
