Samuel was convicted of stealing flour and meat, and transported to VDL on the Barossa, arriving in 1844. He was pardoned after serving 9 years. He had a wife, Ann Duffin and a child, Joseph (born abt 1841) in England. From a search of the online Tasmanian records, is this the Samuel MERRIMAN who married Ellen Barry in 1861-ish and then had two children Sarah Ann and Caroline Ellen in 1861 and 1863 respectively in Tasmania? Are there any descendants of this family??
