Ellis CASPER was born c1784 in London. Ellis and his son Lewin were sentenced at the Old Bailey in London on the 17th June 1839 for 15 years for “feloniously receiving stolen goods”. Ellis and his son were transported to Van Diemen’s Land on the convict ship “Lord Lyndoch” from Plymouth (England) in 1841. It appears that it was the ship’s fifth voyage to Australia. “Lord Lyndoch” was built in Calcutta in 1815 and was of AE1 class. It weighed 638 tons. The Master of the ship was John Humble and the Surgeon was Thomas W. McDonald. “Lord Lyndoch” left Plymouth for Australia on 11th September 1840 and arrived in Hobart Town on 5th February 1841, taking 147 days.

Ellis and his son spent some time in the infamous London prison, Newgate, before being transported to Van Dieman’s Land.
