## Very Difficult to identify William.
1. There were three (3) convicts of that name on the “Tottenham”.
2. Two of these were convicted at Monmouthshire and all three were sentenced to 7 years.
3. All three do appear in the 1828 Census and are aged fairly closely. Details Follow…

On 29th August 1831, at Parramatta, William married Bridget Dixon (AKA Dickson) (Convict, 1827, “Brothers”).
The couple had at least 3 children, George 1832, Margaret 1833 and Theresa 1837.

The daughter, Margaret married, John Armstrong in 1852 and went on to have a very large family (at least 13).  John was the son of John Armstrong (Irish Convict, 1799, “Hillsborough”) and Catherine Mangan (Irish Convict, 1924, “Almorah”).
