Here are some links to his convict records at the Tasmanian Archives but which can be viewed online. Apparently he was transported for Robbery but was actually a Machine Breaker which happened in England around the…"
"Hi Fran, I was trailing through the Kingshott letters here and wondered whether you had found out about the Brookers yet? If you haven't, I can tell you that Matilda Brooker 's family came from Berkshire England, and the father was Elijah…"
Yes, he was the son of John. He was born 1831 in Greatham, married Mary Ann Morgan (Hay) 6th Oct. 1855. Francis died 10th Feb 1900.
Francis and Mary had 10 children. Jane Ann 1854, Hannah Alma 1855, John william 1857, Caroline…"
"Thank you, Gay. This gives me much to work with.
Another question. As is the case for people with ancestors in the same place, I have a stray Francis Kingshott in my database as husband to Mary Ann Morgan, daughter of Sophia…"
I forgot to say before that I have basic family tree info on the Kingshotts going back to 1580 if you would like to fill in any details. It's still a work in progress, but at least enjoyable work! They came from W. Sussex…"
A correction there. John Kingshott came out on the Proteus, to VDL but remained in VDL and during his 7 yrs, was apprenticed as a blacksmith. When he served his time, his wife, Mary and children were allowed to…"

I can see this discussion is well over, but I have a Mary Ann Kingshott born Greatham, Hampshire, England who married William Sargent in New Norfolk Tasmania. Her birthplace was listed on her death certificate which a fellow…"
I am also related to the Kingshott families. I have been searching for Thomas Kingshott (b.abt.1722 & Johns grandfather), and I have looked at the maps of the area. Cotsford could be Copthorne which is near Pease Pottage…"
No apology needed. I'm just glad to see one of the sites I visit start to get some activity. I'm not in Caithness but my ancestors started out in late 1790's in Halkirk then moved south to Edinburgh as did many other…"
I am interested in finding if there were any MORAN's in this part of Ireland around the time of 1850 who may have set said for Australia either as a fare paying passenger or a convict.

Firstly my apologies for this late acknowledgement, but the local historical museum where I do volunteer work has kept me very busy these past few weeks, now turning into a month or more. I shall follow your suggestion and again…"
Wick IS probably the largest town in Caithness which is a shire in the north of Scotland. I looked in the 1841 census and there are quite a few Peter Gunn s named but none in the ministry. Either he was in another place in Scotland in the…"

I am a bit overawed. I have joined many genealogy sites in the past but never have i felt so Welcomed. There is something telling me I will be extremely lucky with family genealogy with this Ning Group.
Thanks a million. I feel all warm and fuzzy.
Thanks Sue, I really appreciate your friendly Welcome. I am hoping to have time over the Festive Season break to do a little more family tree research - not sure how lucky I will be in that area, but anything is worth a try.
