bdm in Tasmania
« on: Sunday 08 July 12 02:27 BST (UK) »
Cannot see online access to BDMs (as in NSW).   Am interested to find out what happened to a convict, Henry Bamford, who arrived in 1843.   He received a cert of freedom in 1847, but I don't know whether he married or when he died.  Can anyone give me some advice.  Thanks, Linda

Sorry, typed wrong surname - should be Henry Bampkin.

Hi, I can't see any Bampkins on database? Lots of Bamford's no Henry?

The only Bampkins I can find are on census 1841 they all come from Leicestershire Eng and could not find Henry? Possibly another first name?

Thank you Neil & Floozy.  According to the online convict record for Henry Bampkin, he sailed on Duchess of Northumberland arriving 18/1/1843 in VDL, Convict No. 8641, and the page has written in different handwritings that he obtained a ticket of leave in 1846 & Cert of F in March 1847.  So I puzzled why he would travel citing a Conditional Pardon (may be he reoffended?) and go to Melbourne in 1852 aboard Shamrock.   However this is the first lead I have had for his after-convict life, so am grateful.
Notice Sparrett has also responded with death in UK - interesting.  Thanks

conditional pardon means he must remain in the Australian colonies or NZ
