This is one bad dude. Would any one anyone have any thing in England on Enoch Kinesla Alias Kinslaugh and Murphy,He was sent out here [ozland] for bigamy, First he married a Mary Bonamy-Moullin from Guernsey as Kinsela then married Eleanor Lutwyche 1804 as Murphy at Worcester, then his first wife complained [i wonder why?] and off he went to the slammer in ozzie, he then has the audacity to shack up with but not marry Mary Adams a fellow convict from Ireland.

Enoch & Mary}are one of my many great grand parents and i would like to get some info on poor old Enoch.

Enoch Fathers name was Thomas Kinsela from County Carlow Ireland

It appears He died in service while working? for the Gov't out here He fiddled the till selling the Gov'ts salt behind their back and they didn't like it, I don't know why.

He was sent here on the vessel "fortune" in 1806. He got 7 years.
You can buy a copy of his convict record from the NSW archives and it may have some info in it regarding him in England. Could make interesting reading actually.

Charles KINSELA, was born 31st July 1814, and baptised 28th August 1814 at Sydney St Phillip's Church. He was registered as Charles ADAMS, son of Enoch KINSELA and Mary ADAMS. Enoch KINSELA was sent to New South Wales in 1806, per ship Fortune, on a charge of Bigamy. He was an educated man and soon after his arrival, was made manager of the Government Salt Pans. He later set up business ventures for himself with some success. He formed an association with Mary ADAMS (Per William Pitt, 1806) and Mary bore him three children, the third being Charles who was born 1 month and 10 days after his father's death (21st June 1814). Enoch's previous experiences had obviously put him off the idea of marriage, although the quasi-official attitude was that transportation rendered void any current marriage

Ok oz steve,
Found this on the national archives of the uk and here is the link also.
http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/

Sounds like his record in the Uk would make real interesting reading:2fun: :2fun:

Scope and content Report of Soulden Lawrence, on 1 individual petition (Abraham Robarts, MP for Worcester) and 1 collective petition (72 people, from the City of Worcester) on behalf of JOHN ENOCH MURPHY alias Enoch Kinsela or Enoch Kinselaugh, convicted at the Worcestershire Spring Assizes held at Worcester for bigamy, by marrying Eleanor Lutwyche (prosecutrix) on 18 August 1804 whilst still married to Mary Bonamy Moullin whom he married in St. Peterport, Guernsey on 7 January 1799. There is a covering letter to the report from Lawrence. The notes of the trial include details of other family members, residences and the trades the prisoner had on the island of Guernsey. The prisoner was banished from Guernsey for 6 years in December 1803. Evidences supplied by Nicholas Moullin, brother of Mary Moullin; John Dumaresque, uncle of Mary Moullin; John George, brother-in-law of Eleanor Lutwyche; John Baker, Margaret Woodgate, John George, John Cobley, attorney's clerk; Elizabeth George, sister of Eleanor Lutwyche; William Davis, gaoler and Eleanor Lutwyche, There are certificates of good conduct for the prisoner from William Faulkner, Chaplain for Worcester Gaol and John Rayment, Surgeon to Worcester Gaol and a letter from William Davis, Governor of Worcester Gaol, stating that the prisoner was industriously employed in teaching other prisoners to read whilst he was confined and that one of the prisoner's wives [name not given] has remarried and the new husband knows of her circumstances. Grounds for clemency: he had served 6 months in prison before the trial, has behaved well while in prison, is able and willing to join the crew of HMS Canada, Captain Hardy is willing to take the convict on board and his 'wife' has subsequently 'remarried'. Initial sentence: 7 years transportation. Recommendation: no mercy. 'It is difficult to suppose, that he [the prisoner] could be known to the respectable persons, who have signed the recommendation in his behalf'. Folios. 252-264.

Covering dates 1805 Nov 12

Gibbo, I'm sure you have the right man, sounds like real character,a man after my own heart,any luck with Mary Adams and her Irish record & parentage,why she was sent here, even though Enoch and Mary were'nt married they were still my great ancestors and i would like to find more out on them.

I wonder how, and the circumstances of Enoch getting that education, He must have come from a well to do family..old Family gossip says that in the end he diddled the Gov'ment for their salt

Maybe if you ordered the marriage cert. if may have Mary's parents on there, well if your real lucky it might. Not sure what the marriage records were like back that far but could be worth a go.
