Thanks Jan thats fantastic and very much appreciated
His records from Tasmania just say Highway Robbery.
It seems a bit extreme to get the death sentence for nine shillings even in those days but maybe it was with violence or a weapon. Most sentences seem to be commuted to life and transportation to the Colonies.
Also on the records was Usual Place, Much Wenlock but that could be just were he was living and not were he was born as i first thought.
This has narrowed his birth date down a bit more but still no parents. Sometimes there were letters sent to the courts for compasion so i may have to look for something like that.
I have two Thomas Chilton's around the time from the IGI, not that the IGI is perfect.
Thomas Chilton chr 21 Jul 1811 Dawley Magna and Thomas Chilton chr 27 Dec 1812 Preston-On-The-Weald but the search goes on.
If you have any suggestions how i might find a definite link to his parents please let me know.
