Reference to the Trial of Richard and William may be found at the Old Bailey online site; t18151025-27.
RICHARD HUNT and WILLIAM HUNT were indicted for stealing, on the 4th of October , four silver table spoons, value 3 l. twelve bottles of wine, value 2 l. and twelve glass bottles, value 2 s. the property of the Wardens of the Sadler’s Company.
William was transported on the Morley as was his brother Richard. However, William was then sent to Van Diemens Land on “pilot”.

He does not occur in the 1828 Census records because he was not in New South Wales.

William’s brother Richard, his wife and 4 of his children, were accidentally drowned in the flood of Gundagai in 1852.

William came back to New South Wales from Van Diemens Land and lived with his nephew at Dural. He purchased a town block at Gundagai and was also granted a block on 22 Dec 1846. He does not appear to have married.
