Charles Belcher was 31 years old when transported for “Stealing from a dwelling house.
Before this Charles had been sentenced to transportation for 7 years for poaching. Character bad, connections very bad. I could’nt find Charles arriving as a convict for this conviction so perhaps he served out his time in the hulks.
15/5/1865: Mary married Jacob Hackstadt at Patterson after Charles died.
