John Emslie Australia convict
John Emslie, the son of James and Sarah (nee Stables) who was born about 1811 in Edinburgh, was a convict :
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.
