Hugh Crabtree Convict to Australia
Still chasing my wonderfully interesting Crabtree Family.
Hugh was convicted as a Rebel in the 1798 Uprising in Carlow. He lived in Kilcullen County Kildare. He left Cork per the Anne 1 in 1800 and in 1801 arrived at Port Jackson. He was given a conditional pardon in 1804 although he had been sentenced for Life. He farmed on the Parramatta River. He married in Australia to a woman named Wilson who was also convicted out of county Armagh - what she did I know not. What I am desperately trying to trace are his children left behind in Ireland. I believe that his eldest Francis born 1783 married in Dublin and I believe his youngest Mary Crabtree born 1797 married in Kildare and am awaiting her marriage certificate. It is the other children I am trying to find viz:
John Crabtree born 1787
James Crabtree born 1789
Margaret Crabtree born 1793
Hugh Crabtree born 1797.
If they left Ireland they may just appear in the 1843 Census.
Sadly I can find no further record for John James Margaret or Hugh on any site in Ireland and I have exhausted every record. Behind him Hugh Snr left a wife Margaret Bagnor. I can find no record of their marriage and can only find one link to a Bagnor in Kildare. Any help on my lovely family would be absolutely wonderful. They may have gone to US or Australia or Canada but I have searched the world and cannot find any of these darlings.
Anyone who might have access to any records and might have a quick look for these lovelies I would be very appreciative.
Thank you - you have been so helpful in the past.
Best wishes

She is talking of the 1806 muster:
“The muster shows ten of the convicts who had arrived on the Anne, five years earlier, as emancipated or free by service. Hugh Crabtree from Carlow was renting 95 acres in partnership with Thomas Dowling (Doolan) from Kilkenny of the Hercules.  Crabtree had received a conditional Pardon in June 1803.
