A native of Newington, William was a painter and glazier. Notes on Indent of Male Convicts records suggest he was known as John Shute, but took the name 'Ware' from his mother Mary Ann Clarke (Indent of Male Convicts CON14-1-11P219).
Transported for 7 years aboard John Brewer for receiving stolen goods, William served his time in Tasmania.
He married Mary Evans in 1849.
William's final resting place is unknown.
