Ephraim was found guilty of stealing meat from butcher shops in the Alnwick area of Northumberland. His family was a very old and well respected Roman Catholic one who suffered economic hardship because of the insidious informant system then in vogue. Ephraim had a large family to feed including a son who was only four years old when he was transported. Ephraim was my 4th Great Grandfather.
