thanks for the link.
However I believe sometime ago I was searching for mention of convicts in
the early editions of the Sydney newspaper, but I have since then lost the

Not quite what you are after but a site I have just found recently when
looking for the fate of a man who stole a horse from my ancestor in New
South Wales. Might be useful to others on the list. Charles Kable (son of
Henry Kable) sentenced to death but that sentence was commuted and he was
sent to Morton Bay, hard labour, in chains, for life.
and go to the search button in the
header. Had a look under Macklin but no joy.
