Timothy Squires & Mary Wells - The Canning Affair - England 1753
The Son of the above was James Squire(s) who was a First Fleet convict in Australia who turned his life around and was the first successful brewer in the colony who has had his beer revived and is for sale in down under.
Mid 1700's in England James's relatives were involved in one of the most talked about legal cases in English history involving aledged kidnapping, assault and prostitution. It seems Elizabeth Canning made this story up and was transported to America for perjury. The truth about this facinating tale will never be known.
I would love to hear from any relatives of this family. I have alot of information regarding these families.
