    Released from Norfolk island

    My Great great great grandfather (a solicitor) was sent to Norfolk Island in 1844 for "false utterance" of will worth £14,000. I have found his record for the duration & that he was released in 1850, but cannot find a trace of him after that. His name is James Kean, b 1811 in Uttoxeter...
