Noting that this original message came from the Middlesex County list for
the UK, I sure hope that Dianne is receiving the replies.
I would very strongly recommend, if you have not already done so, looking at
the NSW State Records' site, under Convicts, at this URL:
Also, in case you have not yet obtained it, I'd strongly recommend reading
this information leaflet of theirs on convict records:

On Behalf Of Dianne Cheesewright
From original sources I have the following:
William CHEESEWRIGHT, born London circa 1813, waterman , was tried and
convicted of larceny at the Central Criminal Court on 18 September 1837.
A single man, aged 24,who could both read and write ,he was sentenced to 7
years and to be transported.
He was received at the hulk "Justicia" , berthed at Woolwich, on 5
>From there he travelled to New South Wales on the ship "Earl Grey"
surviving the journey and arriving there in New South Wales in 1838.
Where please, do I look to find out what happened to him?
Any help gratefully accepted!
