Now the title lets you know what the post will be about and as I have been thinking about this one for a while you might need a cuppa and something to nibble ☺
Lawrence GILL (1801-1891)
Emma Amelia TRUEMAN aka Mary Ann THORNTON (1810-1887)
Laurence was convicted of stealing a griddle iron and was trasported for 7 years in 1820
Emma was convicted of stealing 14 yds of cotton and was transported for 7 years in 1826
Isn't Emma tiny - her records show she was 5 ft
Lawrence was not much taller at 5' 2-3/4"
Some footnotes - I eventually did get me some a very nice convict list for my family.
But once again, hubby, has had to top me
And it is a biggy too!!!
He is descended from at least 3 First Fleeters!!!!
So the original lot who came out from England
Now for the quirky bit ☺
Of these three -
- one was from Ireland,
- one was West Indies,
- and the other was an African-American!!!!!
He also has convicts from the Second Fleet and Third Fleet
Boy, he really does it well when he wants to one-up me ☺
And I did all the research work ☺
