John Emslie Australia convict

Query by BILLCRAIG

John Emslie, the son of James and Sarah (nee Stables) who was born about 1811 in Edinburgh, was a convict :
Transportation record
John Emslie Edinburgh Court of Justice 23 June 1834 Term 7 years

I have lots of info about his crime and transportation and his freedom e.g.
NSW Convict Database
Convict Index Items selected: (max 10 items)
Select Surname Firstname Alias Vessel Year No Date RecordType Citation Remarks
EMSLIE John Mary Anne 1835 41/1337 1 Oct 1841 Certificate of Freedom [4/4368; Reel 1009] Lots of other repeated details plus Year of birth 1811,

Not on 1841 Census in NSW index.


However I can't find anything since then. I thought this might be him but no such luck,i.e.
Reg 8152/1875 John S Emslie age 57 died Narrabri (Note - Narrabri is 500KM north of Sydney in NSW)

He was John Stewart Emslie, died 8 Jan 1875, cause Asthma for many years, parents unknown, Occupation - Conditional Purchaser of Land, registered 25 Jan 1875 by Narribri Hospital, buried 9 Jan 1875, 17 years in the Colony (so came in 1858)

Can anybody help.

Hello asheppard. Thanks for this. I have not seen these before. In fact I am not sure how I managed to get the death info. of the Narrabri one. However I will start investigating further. The marriage in 1889 would mean my John Emslie would have been 78 so I guess it is not him. It could be his son or even grandson.
Can you tell me how you got the information please?
Thanks
Bill

I used the NSW BMD, and also the Queensland BMD both are free to search.

I had a look at the info on ancestry and it gives you the extra details above.

Have you considered that he may have gone back to Scotland, he could have ended up in any State or left the country, you could try searching the WA & VIC BMD's they might have something.
