Abraham LYON was convicted at Linoln, England on 5 Jan 1832 for stealing geese. 7 yr transportation sentence. Previous conviction. To be sent to Van Diemen’s Land (Tasmania) per the ship ‘Surrey’ 1833.
Married man, 2 children.
Noted on Convict Record, VDL: “Died at the Downs, 22nd Nov. Vide Indent”. As the Departure port was Downs, England, 4 Dec 1832, we will presume he died prior to the voyage.
(Note: There was another Abraham Lyons, convict, but not this person.)
