I am a new subscriber to this List.
I am in the process of undertaking some ‘in depth’ research in respect of
the above, who came from Pembrokeshire, Wales (where I live). To help
with this I wonder if there is anyone on this List who has a family, or
other, connection with Sophia? If there is I would be delighted to hear
Earlier this year I posted a similar enquiry to the aus-convicts List and,
whilst I received some helpful replies, no respondent had any family
connection with Sophia.
I already have, from various Australian web sites, information on Sophia’s
arrival, family and death and I am now trying to establish if there is also
a ‘later story’ in terms of her descendants.
With many thanks,
I think as a general rule of thumb there wasn't usually much time between conviction and dispatch of a convict . Recently came across a really different set of circumstances
in the trial of 3 young men 16 May 1847 at Stafford Qrt session who were convicted of malicious wounding of a policeman . All got 10 years transportation
One waited close on 20 month before he was dispatched to Sydney on the transport Hashemy 11 Sep 1849 . The other 2 had a 3 year wait till dispatched to Hobart on the
transport Nile 11(1) 5 Jul 1850.
Stafford CRO weren't able to help except advising me to contact the UK Archives at Kew. Did a live chat last night but it didn't throw up any clue/s
Were convicts still held in some hulk somewhere in 1847 ? Were they kept in a local/ distant prisons ?. Was there any bail type system in place ? Was there some ' king pin' some type of judge who decided who went where and why were they separated ??
The outcome of this had a really mark effect in descendants of these 3 blokes .
