William was born in County Down in about 1792.  In August 1818 he was convicted of robbery and assault (along with his brother Daniel) and was sentenced to transportation for life.  William however escaped the hulk Bellerophon. He was subsequently captured in 1823 and received 24 lashes.  He was transported on the Phoenix (2) and arrived in Van Diemans Land on 21 July 1824.
