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:
