In 1824 he was convicted of ‘refusing to obey an order in bastardy’ and was sentanced to 3 months hard labour. His appearance in 1824 at age 30 was described as ‘5feet 7 inches tall - brown hair with hazel eyes - fair complexion - burn on chest’

William was 57/58 years old on arrival in VDL and was transported for stealing a lamb. He was convicted in 1848 and so must have spent some time in gaol before he was transported. Could not locate his Conduct Record on ‘Linc’ Tas., and found no COF date.
William was 5’6” tall and could read a little, protestant.
Sisters: Alice and Elizabeth - all at native place.
1864: ‘Linc’ Tas., has a death date for William in Hobart in 1864.
