I have submitted the facts in several messages on GenForum message board & others.William was arrested forpoaching, stood trail, found guilty and sentenced sentenced in Rthin Assizes on 16 March 1833 to 14 Years Transportation.He was sent to the hulks in Portsmouth to await transport.In July he was assigned to the shhip Isabella along with 299 other convicts. He arrived in Hobart VDL in November 1833 and was assigned to Benjamin Burthron (or similar spelling)under the assigned labor plan. He was given a Conditional Pardon # 523 on June 15 1842.On 29 August 1843 he received a Free Pardon WHICH ENABLED HIm TO TRAVEL TO THE MAIN LAND.He probably participated in the AU Gold Rush as tradition indicates he sent a gold nugget to his wife, Alice in Wales with offer to join him. She refused. William remarried and reared several red headed kids.He may have returned to Tasmania and lived in Hobart.About 1880 William returned to Denbighshire where he d. 11 May 1890 and was buried at Pentre Saron.
If you are interested in William Williams and can travel to Hobart arrange a visit with the Archivist who may have additional information.William was my G2 grandfather and I have been trying to identify his AU born children.
