Charles Willis was found guilty of Highway Robbery, stealing a watch and 21 sovereigns from George Wilkinson.
Charles said he was drunk, his wife Mary was advanced in pregnancy and he had 2 small children at Tottenham.
12/8/1851: Launceston to Melbourne per “City of Melbourne” - CP - Transported on the Henry Porcher. The ship to the colony was Anastasia, so perhaps he had made other trips to Port Phillip.
26/3/1853: TOL Revoked, so still in Tasmania.
There is a Charles Willis on the Tasmanian Convicts records, B1810 Essex and Died 1865 Hobart. No proof this is him.
