John,
Evan Preece B:12 June 1803, Dilwyn, Hereford, was my great-great-Grandfather.
He was sent to Tasmania, via the Princess Charlotte as a convict in 1824.
He was found guilty of stealing a sheep, along with his brother John Preece at the Hereford Lent assizes, March 1824.
I'm trying to track down:
1. His parents, and their parents
2. His brothers.

Whilst in Tasmania, Evan married Margaret Callahan and had 10 children. After gaining his freedom he and his family settled in the Mount Gambier, South Australia areas. His 11th child, Alexander John Preece, my great-grandfather was born in Mount Gambier in 1852.
The Preece family did rather well for themselves in the area. Many Preece's still live in the area.

I would appreciate any and all help in finding out more information on my family.
