This man doesn't belong to me, but posting the information as he may have
been mislaid by someone on the List.
I found the convict records for John MARSDEN, from Worksop, in the Tasmanian
As he was convicted in Yorkshire, I'm posting the information here, in hopes
he belongs to someone in Notts.
Age: 27 years
Native place: Worksop-Notts
Worked for Mr George Brooks, Holme House near Carlton
Father: Robert Marsden, shepherd
Tried York 22 March 1828 for Burglary
Sentence: Transportation for Life
Arrived in Van Diemen's Land aboard "Manilus" on 9 November 1828
Conduct record -
He appears on FreeREG as John MARSDEN, baptised 16 April 1797 at St Mary
(Priory) Worksop, son of Robert and Ann Marsden.
Children of Robert and Ann Marsden, baptised St Mary (Priory) Worksop -
Joseph Marsden - 13 May 1792
Sarah Marsden - 25 December 1794
John Marsden - 16 April 1797
William Marsden - 30 November 1800
Mary Marsden - 2 October 1803
Robert Marsden - 29 September 1805
Elizabeth Marsden - 3 March 1808
Ann Marsden - 21 October 1810
John Marsden's convict records show he was 27 in 1828, so born about 1801.
There is a death recorded in Tasmania for John Marsden, born 1801, died 15
May 1882, aged 81, Launceston-Tas (Reg No 706/1882), and a marriage between
John Marsden and Elizabeth Beaven in 1832 in Launceston-Tas, with them
having 13 children. A family researcher for this man shows that this John
Marsden was also from Nottingham (b.1802), the son of John Marsden and Jane
Wessley. Again, posting this information, so this man can be discounted.
