Richard Williams was initially sentenced to death at Lancaster Assizes on 15/08/1815 for uttering a forged £5 note. This was later commuted to transportation for life. He appears to have left a wife & child behind in England. He was given permission to marry Amelia Jones (another transportee)in 1837. He was given his “ticket of leave” in 1835 and a full pardon in 1845.
