John Hawley convicted and transported to Australia 1829
My g/g/grandfather John James Shufflebottom or Shufflebotham was sentenced to transportation for life at the Derby Assizes in March 1829, his partner in crime was John Hawley aged 18 and I wonder if anybody is a descendant of that John and researching his family history, as we could share information on their crime and other details of their life if known in england before they were caught and punished.

My husband and I are interested in tracing the roots of our family and have been doing so since 1956, so we now have about 15+Gb of info on our computer about the families of both of us, and we are interested in making contact with any member of any of the families we are researching to share information, looking also for photos and certificates for any family member to add to our huge files on those families. After all these years they are still a "work in progress" and we would like more please
