Hopefully someone will be able to help me.
During the years 1845-1849 five particular convict ships, "Thomas Arbuthnot", "Joseph Somes", "Maitland", "Marion" and the "Eden",
transported approximately 500 "Exiles" to Port Phillip who were ex-juvenile convicts from Parkhurst Prison on the Isle of Wight. If anyone has life history knowledge of any of these individuals after disembarking I would love to hear from you.
My interest is that I am researching for a PhD on Parkhurst Prison between 1838-1864 and am in a position to be able to exchange reasonable information for any of these 500.
