If James had been a Tasmanian convict we'd have parents and siblings names and a physical description of him.

That's a dead end.

Don't think we will have any luck Geoff.

Do we even know he was born in Lancs? Just because he was convicted there?

Title: James Taylor, one of 292 convicts transported on the [H.M.S.] Calcutta, February 1803.
Details: Sentence details: Convicted at Lancaster Quarter Sessions for a term of 14 years on 28 August 1802.
Vessel: [H.M.S.] Calcutta.
Date of Departure: February 1803.
Place of Arrival: [Port Phillip] New South Wales [transferred to Van Diemens Land 1804].

How do we know it's the Lancs one? Because a tree says so!

The second set of films at the State Library might have more info re the 1810 marriage. If the allegations can be found it will list the vessel.

The image from film at local library:

V1810935 3A/1810 TAYLOR JAMES - PEWTERERS CONSTANCE CA= CofE St Philip Sydney

1810 March 12 James Taylor - Constance Pewterers [License] St. Philip Sydney St. P Sydney B


Title: James Taylor, one of 278 convicts transported on the Admiral Gambier and Eolus [Aeolus], July 1808.
Details: Sentence details: Convicted at Kent Assizes for a term of life on 27 July 1807.
Vessel: Admiral Gambier and Eolus [Aeolus].
Date of Departure: July 1808.
Place of Arrival: New South Wales.
Source: Australian Joint Copying Project. Microfilm Roll 87, Class and Piece Number HO11/1, Page Number 408

TAYLOR James Admiral Gambier 1808 30/448 Ticket of Leave [4/4075; Reel 914] District: Illawarra; Born: Surrey; Trade: Sawyer; Tried: Kent GD

TAYLOR James Admiral Gambier 1808 25/474 Ticket of Leave [4/4060; Reel 890] District: Kissing point; Born: Surry 1767; Trade: Sawyer; Tried: Kent GD 1807

All we know is that he arrived before the 1810 marriage.


There are 98 x James and three others also arrived before 1810.

TAYLOR James - Calcutta 1803 - CP 31 Jan 1815 [4/4430] 774 - 082

I can't see a permission to marry in 1810 so it would seen those who arrived 1808 or 1803 would not have had CP by 1810.

That leaves two who arrived earlier.

I think we wait until I can check out the 1810 marriage on the other set of films. It may have age or occupation or ship or consent of Governor. I can't see CP or TOL or App to Marry for several if those who arrived before 1810.

I'll sleep on that so catch you later.

I can't find a James who fits. There is no Application to Marry so it would appear James had at least a CP.

There are two more not listed in the Transportation database who arrived before 1810.

That makes 5 to try to sort out.

TAYLOR James Stafford 03/1790 7 years Britannia (1) or one other vessel in that fleet

TAYLOR James Middlesex 07/1784 7 years One of these vessels in the fleet- Alexander, Charlotte, Friendship I, Lady Penrhyn, Scarborough (1), Prince of Wales

Oh, 4 years before the First Fleet.

The difficulty with James is that there are a few possibles, including 2 aliases and 2/3 cm's... he may have been a soldier..

Yes. I suggest we wait until I can search the films at the Mitchell Library for another version of the 1810 marriage.
