Hello,

Title: Richard Siggs, one of 200 convicts transported on the Lady Harewood, 13 March 1832.
Details: Sentence details: Convicted at Sussex Quarter Sessions for a term of 7 years on 20 October 1831.
Vessel: Lady Harewood.
Date of Departure: 13 March 1832.
Place of Arrival: New South Wales.

Probably East Sussex as Richard was born in Burwash in 1807.

I'm wondering if any more details can be found of the offence and trial.

Thanks.

Regards,

Dave

Thanks gibbo. :)

That confirms Richard was 20 in 1831 so does not fit with 1807. :rolleyes:

I keep returning to the fact the trees have Richard b. 1807 and no mention at all he was a convict.

Yet they both come from Burwash.

Working on it Lee with the help of our convict expert, gibbo. :2fun:

Seems Mary was a convict but there are over 10 Mary SULLIVAN convicts to NSW not all from Cork.
