I am researching the Pentrich revolution convicts, they are, Joseph Rawson, 1782-1821, Josiah Godber 1753-1822, John Bacon 1768-1828, Thomas Bacon 1753-1831, German Buxton 1786-1835, Thomas Bettison 1782-1835, John Onion 1768-1840, Joseph Turner 1799-1840, Edward Turner 1783-1841, George Brassington 1784-1846, John Hill 1786-1849, John MacKesswick 1779-1853, Samuel Hunt 1793-1858, George Weightman 1791-1865

All were transported 1818 for their part in the Revoution, I do have some info on on these men, mostly transportation details and musters, but am searching for anything from the censuses as I can't get the Australian ones here in England, and any descendants, Sylvia

Hi

I am investigating George Brassington and his possible daughter Eliza Brassigton bc 1811 (my Great great Grandmother) who married William Birks 24 March 1834. If you have any information on George Brassington's family before his transportation I would be most interested.

Regards

Hiya, John

Good to heard from you, and sorry to take so long to answer, i only just found you message, I have un-certified but reasonable information that George married Hannah Taylor (of the Taylor pentrich revolutionaries) in 1810 , the only children I had found were Oliver 1816 (male) and Oliver 1816 (female) so they were either twins and a mis-spelling of Olivia, or it had been entered twice, once as male and once as female

I am still stuck on researching the Ludlams, (on whose tree George and Hannah make an entrance, as the Taylors also marrid into the Ludlams) each time i try to start the next tree i get dragged back to the Ludlams,

With the exception of 3 families all of the Revolutionaries were related

I would be very interested in adding your bit of info to the project, if you are interested please get in touch again, or to my home email address sylviamason@uwclub.net, and i can tell you more about the project

many thanks

Sylvia

Hi,
I am a descendant of Josiah Godber, I know he died in Sydney but I would have to go through my late sister's research to see how he fits into my family tree.

Roger.

Hi
I am a decendant of Josiah Godber. My cousin Malcom Godber has traced the tree in some detail. I have a copy of Josiah's letters that are held at the National Library of Australia. I migrated to Australa in the 1980s but Josiah had no children here. However, it is good to know I am not the first to come to the wide brown land.
