Joseph Willford was transported on the Justitia in Sep 1766.
I have never found a listing of that trip or where it landed in America.
Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Marcia,
I've found the documents holding the names of the convicts transported on board the ship Justitia in 1766: You need to request details for your ancestor and they then send them to you in the post.

If you go to http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk and key in the item reference T 1/450/96-101.

Or, try this link:

I hope that helps and that you find him on the register.

Best wishes,

Cathy
