I have a William NETTLESHIP born about 1807 and sentenced to transportation to Van Dieman's Land (Tasmania)on 14 Jan 1829 at Nottingham. I do not at this stage know what crime he was found guilty of.
I do know that he married an Ellen DUCROW nee HALLEY in Aug 1837 at Launceston, Tasmania. They moved to Victoria in July 1839 and farmed a property at Heidelberg for about nine years until William suddenly died at the age of forty-one.
I would like to know a) what crime William was convicted of and b) who his parents were.
