John and his brother Thomas Houston Wood were both transported to Australia, for stealing boots and shoes. Thomas Wood came on the ship “John” in 1832. Thomas married Jane Purcell and had many children. No further information can be found for John.
I am a direct descendent of Thomas and Jane’s daughter Mary Ann Wood, who married John Percy.
