I made a mistake in my initial post, Daniel Betton was my 3 x great grandfather, sentenced to 10 years transportation alongside his nephew George Betton for stealing wood and fowl.

George is the son of Edward Betton, Daniels older brother.  Edward's third son, John, was also transported for 7 years in 1846 for stealing 2 rabbits and 2 fowl.

I have written 2 case studies on Daniel and George as part of a diploma of family history I am studying at the University of Tasmania, they each didn't fair well after their arrival in the colonies George finding himself on Norfolk Island at one point during his sentence.

John's story is a little less scant but he did have a longer, less traumatic journey. 

If anyone is interested in more information on these three Betton's contact me via my email address carol.brunt@yahoo.com.au
