William Whyler Tasker and Ann Farr, my 4th Great Grandparents.

Journal by Jocelynlenoel

William married Ann April 1832, their first child was George Tasker, born 1833. William was convicted of Larceny October 1833 and was given life sentence and shipped to Tasmania April 1834. In April 1842 Ann was convicted for accepting stolen goods and got four months imprisonment. By this time George would be about nine years old. I want to know "WHO LOOKED AFTER GEORGE DURING THOSE FOUR MONTHS?" and was he re-united with his mother when she came out of prison".

Hello Markay,

Thank you so much for your message, I appreciate that.It didn't occur to me to check the census's. I am pleased to learn that he was with his mother during the 1841 and 1851 census.

However, I do know that William Whyler Tasker lived till he was 79 years old and died in 1891 in Castlemaine, Victoria, Australia. He had married three times and had 15 children. His third wife was 28 years younger than he and together they had 14 children.

William served 11 years in the colony before becoming a Ticket of Leave Man for 3 years. He was eventually granted a conditional pardon, lived and worked on his farm.
