Frederick Lintott was born in Islington, London in 1829 to William and Elizabeth Maria Lintott (nee Perkins), and was Baptised on August 5th 1829.
Frederick (aged 19), together with his elder brother Benjamin (aged 32), were convicted of burglary at London Central Criminal Court (the Old Bailey) on Wednesday November 29th 1848.  Both brothers were sentenced to 7 years transportation.  Their occupations on being convicted was Brushmaker and Porter, and Mariner respectively.
Following their conviction both brothers were initially incarcerated at Newgate Prison, and both were subsequently transferred to Milbank Prison, London on February 12th 1849 (Prisoner No. 16,662 and 16.663 respectively).                                                                              Frederick was later transferred to the Warrior Hulk Ship moored at Woolwich on November 26th 1849 (Prison Register No. 4520), and Benjamin transferred to Shorncliff Barracks in Sandgate, Folkstone (Prison) on January 11th 1850.
On July 4th 1851 Frederick was moved from the Warrior Hulk Ship to the “Minden” Convict Ship in preparation for sailing to the Swan River Colony in Western Australia. The Convict Ship was to depart London on July 16th 1851 and arrived in Fremantle on October 14th 1851.
Their sister, Jemima Lintott appealed for clemency by letter on July 12th 1851 – no doubt aware that the younger brother had been transferred to the “Minden” Convict Ship - and her testimony hinted at the privileged life that the Lintott family had enjoyed before falling on hard times.      Background research has revealed that their father William Lintott was a Butcher at Leadenhall Market and had property at 5 High Holborn, London and also at 9 Wells Row, Islington.  Unfortunately, William was declared bankrupt in 1825, and was not discharged from this situation until May 1831 – with all his assets having been sold.                                                        In Jemima’s letter she states that in addition to Frederick and Benjamin there is only one other surviving brother in the family.
Mother Elizabeth Maria Lintott passed away in 1834 (aged 45), and Father William Lintott appears to have passed away in 1845 (aged 71 …..if this is the correct William).
Benjamin was eventually transferred to the York Hulk Ship on April 14th 1852 (Prisoner No. 163), but was then given a free pardon on September 28th 1852 following a further plea be letter from his sister, Jemima ….  In which she mentioned a likely inheritance should he be freed.
In Western Australia, Frederick appears to have spent the early part of his transportation sentence in the Geraldton area where he married Catherine Canavan on June 16th 1856.  He also appears to have established a Butcher business in partnership with a Thomas Watson in Champion Bay – this partnership being dissolved by mutual consent in July 1858 (The Perth Inquirer & Commercial News). Frederick ran Glen Osborn Farm in Greenough from 1868-1888 and employed at least four Ticket-of-Leave convicts (Battye Library).
Frederick and Catherine had 11 children :- Elizabeth (1856-57), Maria Anna (1858), Margaret (1860), Emma Jemima (1860), William (1861), Frederick (1862-62), Catherine (1865-65), Florence (1866), Catherine (1870), Charles (1872) and Elizabeth (1874) – eight of which survived into adulthood.
Frederick Lintott died on July 3rd 1875 (aged 46) in Greenough.  Catherine died ??
Daughter Emma Jemima Lintott married James Durnin (Dornan) in Gwalia in 1879.
