Francis was sent to Australia after a string of convictions and prison terms in the 1850/60’s. He was a Pearl Button maker in Birmingham UK as were other members of his family. He returned to the UK by 1875 where he married -twice - and had two children. He returned to Australia in 1879 with his family and settled there. I believe he died in 1910.
