Isaac was my 4x great grandfather. He was a tilemaker. His felony is unknown and he received transportation for life. He married Elizabeth Ferguson, who arrived in 1835 on The Arab. He was murdered by his next door neighbour and died side days later. He was my father’s mother’s mother’s father’s mother’s mother’s father.

His transportation is listed in the manifest for The Hibernia, which arrived on 11/5/1819.



Tasmanian records for permission to marry under ticket of leave are also easily searchable.

Link to the record of his conviction. He was sentenced to death, which was evidently commuted.
