Claimed convict


William Green was tried for stealing a necklace on the 7th January 1835 and received a sentence of 7 years transportation to Australia. He spent 9 months on a prison hulk on the Medway River in Chatham before being transported.
Eventually William was sent to Australia on the "Susan II" arriving in 1836. He was sent to work on farms with different masters over the 7-year period, most likely as a shepherd. He did abscond at one stage in 1839 and was on the run for about 9 months but this did not appear to alter his sentence and he received his certificate of freedom on the 17th February 1843.
William married Elizabeth Brierley on the 6th September 1845 at Kelso Bathurst and they had 13 children.
William had a sad end to his life because the day after his son Thomas’ wedding to Sarah Houst on the 16th August 1874 he choked to death while eating with food becoming stuck in his throat.
