Joseph Windle was the brother of Alfred Windle. They were both found guilty of stealing 48 rolls of ribbon and Joseph was sentenced to 7 years transportation while his brother Alfred, the elder brother, was sentenced to death. This sentence was commuted to 99 years transportation and they both ended up in New South Wales. Alfred arrived on the ship Guildford in 1822 while Joseph arrived the same year on the ship Eliza. It is thought that Joseph returned home to England but it is known for sure that Alfred stayed in New South Wales after he obtained a full pardon. He married and had 13 children before he died in Coogee, New South Wales.
