Hi I wonder if anyone is going to the William Brown Library could they please do a look up for me.
I'm looking for the records of Liverpool Borough Prison, Great Howard Street in 1851.
Prisoners name is Cornelius Gibbons born Ireland 1837. he was 14 years old and a Dock Labourer.
I would like to know why he was in there and if he was transported to Tasmania if so when?
Thank you.  ;D

Trying to find where Cornelius Gibbons originated from. He married Jane Pearmain in Port Sorell 25 Oct 1862, Jane arrived from England 10 Mar 1862 on the ship "Solway" from London. I can't find a passenger list for the Solway to see if Cornelius was with her then also I can't find him on a list of convicts so when did he arrive in Tasmania? He was 26 at the time of his marriage so that makes him born around 1836, the witnesses to the marriage were Elizabeth Chatwin and Alfred Chatwin, Elizabeth was Jane's sister and she married Alfred 19 Apr 1858 in Port Sorell. There is a prisoner in Liverpool city gaol in 1851, Cornelius Gibbons age 14 a dock labourer but I have'nt been able to find his crime or conviction to see if he was transported. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

George Randall in 1851 gives his birth place as Southwell, Nottinghamshire c1788. Would be grateful if someone could find this birth.
Also his wife, Martha Augusta Mathev birth place just Nottinghamshire c1796.  Mathev is probably wrongly transcribed.
Thank you.
