In Ireland, but from Bucks.
I've been looking for this chap, all day and before. No burial nor death in, or around Princes Risborough. Nor any Census, that would fit.
His wife, remarried in 1857. I can only guess he was considered deceased, after all the time passed.
Wife down as widow, in the 1851 Census.

St Mary's, Princes Risborough Baptism - 29 Jul 1810. James born 6 Mar 1810, son of James & Elizabeth WALKER of Longwick, Labourer.

James Walker.
Age - 31.
Estimated Birth Year - 1810
Date of Trial - 05/04/1841
Trial Year 1841
Location of Trial - Buckinghamshire England. (I would assume, Aylesbury Assizes).
Sentence - Transportation, 10 years for sheep stealing.

I have no idea what ship, or if/when he arrived at his destination, nor where he sailed from, or if he died beforehand.

My instinct is he was sent to Australia.:rolleyes::biggrin:

Any other clues to be found.....anywhere.:confused:
