Isaac Beaumont and his brother Joshua, stole a watch from Robert Hadley at Attercliffe, near Sheffield, seems his brother was not caught.
Isaac was married with 1 child.

Married Mary Whytelaw from Glasgow, Scot, (came free per the New York Packet in 1841). They had 8 or 9 children (6 lived) and Mary died in July 1856 in childbirth, the son dying with her an hour later.

The children were known by the surname of Bowman, possibly to hide the fact of him being a convict.

Oct 1845: TOL
June 1850: CP

Isaac continued to commit crimes mainly stealing stock, but in 1864 was given 10 yrs. on chain gang.

5/2/1896: Isaac died at the home of his eldest daughter.

Joshua Beaumont per Gilmore 1838 looks like a possible contender for his brother, he was transported to VDL.
