The Common Room / Joseph and Thomas Love, were they brothers?
« on: Friday 02 November 18 01:19 GMT (UK)  »
Joseph and Thomas Love were convicts sent to Tasmania in 1836 on the ship Henry Porcher. Joseph was convicted of stealing oranges at Essex Quarter Session  and Thomas for stealing a watch at Essex Quarter Session they both got 7 years. On his release Thomas married Margaret Sinclair and they stayed in Tasmania. Not sure if Joseph married in Tasmania or not but he did go back to England and this maybe him on the 1851 census in  Halstead, Essex with wife Elizabeth, Page Number 1
Registration Number HO107  Piece/Folio 1784 / 216.  Pretty sure it's him on the 1871 census St Giles, Essex with a different wife Mary Ann, they married 1857, Halstead,  Volume 4A  Page 562.
It is thought that they were both born in Ireland but Joseph lived in Halstead and Thomas lived in Coggleshall when they were convicted, Joseph was a saddle maker and Thomas a silk weaver.
Looking for their births and if they were brothers also if Joseph married Elizabeth in Tasmania or England.  Thank you.
