I am descended from John Dunn Whitbourn b c 1800 who arrived in Tasmania with his 1st wife Susan Charter in 1842. He remarried Elizabeth Cross (b c 1824) shortly after. Elizabeth Cross was a convict and I have her details. In our family John Dunn Whitbourn was reputed to have had 25 children - I think I've found about 20!! I have quite a bit of info about the Whitbourns in Tasmania and Victoria , Australia but am at a bit of a loss before that. John Dunn Whitbourn and Susan Charter chr. some of their children in Cambridge. Any thoughts?
Along the way I came across a convict Elizabeth Whitbourn - but she does not appear to be connected to me at this stage. Here are her details; Elizabeth Whitburn was tried at the Old Bailey 10th Jun 1844 (aged 19). Her crime was larceny in a dwelling house at Lambeth (I have more detail) and she was transported to Tasmania, Australia for 10 yrs aboard the ship 'Tasmania(1)'. Her place of abode was given as New Norfolk. She married Job Hodges at age 23, 16th AUG 1847.
