Claimed convict


THOMAS WEBB was born in Surry, England in 1797.

He was roughly 5.5 feet tall with brown hair and grey eyes.

Thomas had been convicted (possibly for burglary) at Middlesex Gaol Delivery for a term of Life on 13 January 1819, aged 22. He was one of 170 convicts transported on the ‘Malabar’, 14 June 1819 to Port Jackson.

He was sent to work as a stockman in the Bathurst area around 1822. He received his Ticket of Leave in 1819 and was given a conditional pardon in 1839.

At the age of 40, he applied to marry Bridget Hogan, aged 25 who was a convict still under sentence from the ship ‘Sarah and Elizabeth’, and received permission to marry in 1837.

A native of Ireland, BRIDGET HOGAN had arrived in Port Jackson in 1837. She was tried at the Central Criminal Court (London) in 1836 and received a 7-year sentence. Her crimes were stealing clothing items such as a bonnet and shawl and pawning the items.

It's possible that the marriage may be of convenience or a very fast romance. However, they had at least 6 children during their union.

Thomas Webb died of natural causes in the Orange district in 1866.
