James Lomax was from Great Marlow, Buckinghamshire. Married to Deborah and a father of six. He was transported (7 yrs)for stealing chickens and dahlia bulbs. Sadly James died on 17 Sept 1840 at Paddy’s River, NSW, 2 1/2 years into his sentence. One of his sons (also James Lomax) was also a convict who was transported out on the ‘Duncan’ in 1840. His other three sons all joined the British Army.
