Not sure Lazarus can you post the name
David Lockley from Warwickshire born 1828. Apparently he was on a ship called Belgravia in 1866. If he was in Tas I'd view the indent and conduct report. I know NSW records aren't there for many of them, but I don't know about WA.
A simple google search hasn't told me much at all. The sites which say they have convict information don't have the real stuff, just lists of names and ships.
Actually, Western Australian history in general is a mystery to me. I have some learning to do.
I dont know if you have this information David Lockley was sentenced to 8 years for receiving stolen goods sentenced with him was Elijah Warom also sentenced to 8 years for house breaking. I use Google Chrome and there are a few stories about the pair of them . I am only new to this so still learning also . Lynette
Thank you, lyn22. This was very useful. I found a bit on there too about them after you pointed me in the right direction. Searching Elijah Warom brought heaps out too.
One website about WA convicts recommends checking the microfilm for verification, so they must exist somewhere. I may need a state library service.
No worries Irene I have four convicts that were transported to N.S.W so I have to make a trip to the library also I live in Country Victoria so I am hoping they have it there. I have been helped on this forum with two of my convicts. As you said Tasmanian convicts have a lot more records. Lynette
You could also search this index and find some more info. Try looking at Warwick newspapers but I am having trouble finding any online at the moment.
