Jenkin Rees was an exile.  He was tried in 1847, aged 32, and so had spent time in prison in Wales and then took the transportation option up and received a TOL almost immediately.

1850: TOL Moreton Bay
15/10/1850: TOL Passport, on the recommendation of the Commissioner of Crown Lands, Darling Downs.

Jenkin was married to Eliza Jenkins, born Cardiff 1825 and died 1/3/1896 in Brisbane.  Eliza must have come out with Jenkin as their 3 children were all born in Qld., Mary Ann 1855, Morgan 1859, and Janet 1861.

29/3/1855: Donated 5s., to the Patriotic fund in the District of Brisbane.

30/4/1859: Lived near the Alliance Hotel, Boundary Road, Fortitude Valley.

When Jenkin died, 1 year before Eliza, she was the benificiary of his will.

The Bradshaw connection was probably the daughter Mary Ann who married Thomas Bradshaw in 1874.
