Hi
Am trying to determine a little bit more about my x4 great grandfather James Evans 1808-1876.

James was born 1808 Monmouthshire Wales to Thomas Evans & Elizabeth (,Betsy) Morgan.

James died in 1876 at the Portland (vic) belevolent asylum

Recently noticed on James 1870 victorian marraige cert to maryann boden he was a widower.

James was convicted in 1833 of stealing a Turkey (kid you not) & sent to Van Diemans Land & shipped on the Emporer Alexander.

His convict record mentioned he had a wife Fanny & a child (unnamed).

If possible i would like to know more info on James parents and siblings & his 1st wife Fanny & unnamed child

Thank you

It's the only one I can find in Monmouthshire.

It will be next week sometime when I get my internet connection back and then I'll be able to look at convict records in Tasmania.
