David Batty was convicted at the Quarter Sessions for the Liberty of Westminster, County of Middlesex, on the 5th July, 1787 and sentenced to seven years transportation to the colonies.He arrived by the ship Allemarle sailing from Portsmouth, England on March 27th 1791 arriving in Port Jackson (now Sydney) 13.10.1791. NB. Over 4 years of his sentence had elapsed before he reached Australia.
David's defacto wife Mary Turner(aka Wilkes) who arrived by the first fleet ship Lady Penrhyn arrived 22.1.1788.
I have quite a bid of information on both David and Mary and their decendants in Australia if anyone is interested - what I don't have is very much information on his english connections. This is what information I have.
