Free Settler or Felon? website has mention of Convict Thomas LINACRE aboard ship America 1829. He was a Plumber and Glazier and assigned to J.H. EDWARDS.

RootsWeb World Connect Project has 397 search results for LINACRE most coming from the Lancashire area of England.

Try obtaining your Margaret LINACRE nee CLARK's death certificate. Hopefully it may list her parents names. But death certs are only as reliable as the informant at the time. You could look at the Rootschat site to see what you could find. Register as a new user, post a lookup request.

Best wishes.

JOHN LINACRE was a convict, he came from liverpool linconshire England.
His father was a John Linacre & mother Margaret Travers I believe.
On Graytown deaths it has my G Grandmother & johns daughter Louisa White married aged 17 years and died aged 28 years a few weeks after giving birth.
The baby Alexander John White also died aged 9 weeks
Louisa's parents were then listed as John Linacre & Margaret O'Leary.
Thanks for the information given, I will try to follow it up.

A New South Wales Government Gazette in 1842 has a paragraph on a John Linacre of Maitland escaping by boat with other convicts from Nobby's Island near Necastle.

Do you want the details.
