Im trying to track my 4th great uncle Henry Maunder b. 1804 Cullumpton Devon.

Henrys parents are William Maunder & Maria Andrews, while his wife was Harriett Stocker.

Henry was transported to NSW in 1839 on the Barossa for sheep stealing. He served 7 years of a 14 year sentence.

After his release he simply vanishes.

Ive searched bdm nsw & got death certs however they arent my man.

Ancestry says he died in either 1882 in paramatta (no official record) or 1890 in Stroud (not him)

Hi

The Henry Maunder on the Barossa [1839] had been charged with Burglary and received 14y, this may have been commuted at some point. He was aged 36y [b. c1803]. Married with 4 children. Occupation = weaver. Just to confirm this is your man.
