The (CP) Conditional Pardon required that the pardoned remained in the
Colony. They were not permitted to return to the UK under pain of hanging.
This meant that George could go to any part of Australia.
Many moved to Victoria in the early fifties to search for gold and for
employment in the fairly buoyant economic conditions at the time.
Let me know if I can be of further help.

Subject: [AUS-Tas] George Jenner....Transported
I am new to the list.
I know that at least one of my husband's ancestors was transported from a
small town in Sussex, namely Battle.
One George Jenner is named in a small book called "Crimes and Criminals of
Battle as having been transported in 1836 for life.
.Many people seemed to be sentenced to transportation from there, often
a very petty crime.
Through the records in Ancestry I have managed to trace George Jenner
He arrived on the Henry Porcher which sailed on the 1st August in Van
In the Convict musters he is mentioned in 1841 . In the Remarks column it
says "Mr Thompson" and what looks like "New Napels"
He is mentioned in the musters again in 1846, but no remarks
in 1847/48 he is in the Pardons list
and in 1849 he was given a Conditional Pardon.
I am new to all this (live in Scotland)
Can anyone advise how I can find out more about George.
Would he have had to remain in Tasmania after his Pardon?
