I am hoping someone can help me with William Jenkins convict. His family, wife and 2 daughters arrived in Tasmania on the William Jardine in 1849 but I assume that William had arrived before then. My guess is that he may be the William Jenkins who was convicted in Devon in 1838 who came to V D Land on the ship GILMORE arriving in OCtober 1838. His wife was Mary, daughters Jane and Mary Ann. I would appreciate any information on him.

Thank you so much for your information. It has confirmed that I was following the correct person. It also explains why his family came out in 1849; that is when he received his conditional pardon.

Is there any way of finding out what happened to him when he was released. My guess is that he went to NSW, as that is where his 2 daughters died, Jane (Shields) at Appletree Flat, Mudgee and Mary Ann (Shields) they married brothers.

Thanks.

Hi Jane and Mary Anne married 2 Shields brothers who were sent to Tasmania after stealing 2 horses, William and James. I know James moved to Victoria and had 12 children. James is my great great grandfather. Their father was George Shields.
