He was charged with 'picking pockets', trial was at the Bristol Quarter Sessions on 8 January 1839 where he was sentenced for 10 years to the colonies. He was transported to Australia via ship 'Barossa' which arrived in New South Wales with 336 male convicts. Samuel Dinner was No. 11 on the Indent List, Prisoner No. 39/1234. The 'Barrosa' arrived from England on 8th December 1839.

Occupation in Australia is listed as being a Blacksmith.

Tattoos:

... Back to the BURGESS family ...

Ada Sarah BURGESS 1876-1958 probably came from a large family. Lately I have managed to find two sisters and her parents names.

Sibling Lillian BURGESS born 1875 NZ died 23 Jul 1958 NZ married unknown male NAGEL who it is known was killed in the railways. She then married Thomas COLEMAN and they had two children, Maisie and Inez. {no other details known}

Sibling Bertha BURGESS born {unknown} died {unknown} married unknown NAGEL who was the brother of Lillian's husband. {no other details known}.

The BURGESS children - their parents were Henry BURGESS and Mary Ann GILES. Henry BURGESS was born 1849 England and died 12 Jun 1917 NZ. Mary Ann GILES was born 1850 England died 16 Nov 1931 NZ. They were from Sevenoaks in Kent, England. I don't know where the couple are buried. But they came out to New Zealand aboard the ship 'Cartvale' in 1874.

Can someone lookup a marriage folio ref of 0982 in 1866 please for BURGESS and GILES?

Thanks,
Alison.
