John Hawley convicted and transported to Australia 1829

Journal by Rockborne38

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

Do you know someone who can help? Share this:

I'm not researching him, he died at Raymond Terrace on 2 October 1897. His father was John Hawley as well and his mother was Jemima Vaines

thank you for that info Janilye, how can we be sure that this is the same John Hawley who was the partner in crime for my g/g/grandfather, and was transported in the same ship in 1829, do you have other info on him, or sites we can find other details for him, we could find no marriage for him, do you know any more about him as we would like to be in contact with any descendants to share info on their time prior to conviction and transportation.

Of course you're right!
Researcher's need to follow Hawley from the MORLEY whose name appears on the transport register with Shufflebotham and arrived on the MORLEY in 1829. The only HAWLEY to arrive in Australia in 1829.. The only HAWLEY to settle in the Scone District. The only John HAWLEY:
