My G3 grandfather, William Williams [1805-1890] was a guest of the state for a few years. He arrived Hobart on the ship Isabella Nov 1833 as Convict # 1641 having been sentenced to 14 years transportation for poaching. He was assigned to Benjamin Berthon and earned a Free Pardon 110 in 1843. William from Denbighshire had 4 children by his Welsh wife, Alice Parry. He invited Alice to join him in AU but she rejected the offer. So William found another mate and produced several more red haired children. In 1881 William returned to Denbigh and lived another 9 years with his daughter and son-in-law. So I am looking for Williams cousins in AU.
