Good Morning John Bell (sorry, evening down under),

William HUMBER is beginning to emerge as a real person through your efforts and I am extremely grateful.   Sadly Rica Erickson's  "Dictionary of West Australians" is not available to me, even through the University library, and I wonder if there is any more narrative in the citation you quoted?    There are no entries in the BDM Indexes, so I am assuming he never married, although that doesn't preclude children!!

The Fremantle Prison website has an entry for "HUNTER", but it is noticeable that the information is almost tentative, certainly not as authoritative as their usual prisoner profiles.

For now,

BAC3

I have been corresponding with a HUMBER descendant via Ancestry's Public Member Trees who had no knowledge of William HUMBER's transportation to WA.  However, you have now opened a new avenue for her to explore, namely Arthur and Mary Ann ROOT.

Thank you.......the value of RootsChat!!!! ;D

Hi all on this thread. I have found it rather late in the piece.
Is this William Humber born 1835 to James Humber and Rachael Frankland of Loughborough, Leicestershire?
I have been following the same line and it seems it is him. He is my gt gt grandfather Amos Humberís brother. Amos, William and James Humber were all in court at one time or another.
I would love to have further confirmation if anyone has it.

Anbra,

I have sent you a Personal Message containing my email address.   If you respond that will enable me to reply with a WORD document setting out a Biography for William HUMBER........I also have a Biography for his brother, and co-defendant, James.

If you do not receive my Personal Message, as the rules of RootsChat dictate you make at least 2 or 3 posts before a Personal Message can be sent, then just post 2 or 3 more messages merely saying "Hello" and the system should work.  I hope this makes sense.   DO NOT put an email address in any post to RootsChat!!!

For now,

BAC3
