Hello,

Giles WILMOTT & Betty BRITTON married at Bitton on 25 Aug 1782

A Giles WILMOTT died on 9 Oct 1800 but I don't know if it this one or the other one.

Giles, a coal miner, spouse of Mary, was a notorious criminal.

Mary, a notorious criminal, is said to have died on 1 Feb 1841 at Oldland.

Can anyone provide the evidence for those statements taken off a web site?

Jasper b. abt 1795 c. 5 Sep 1802 St Mary's, Bitton, Gloucester

Jasper Wilmott, one of 250 convicts transported on the General Stewart 19 July 1818
Sentence details: Convicted at Somerset Assizes for a term of life
Vessel: General Stewart
Date of Departure: 19 July 1818
Place of Arrival: New South Wales


Joseph b. abt 1800 c. 5 Sep 1802 St Mary's, Bitton, Gloucester
