WA: WESTCOTT, Henry, Born 1832, Bridgwater, Somerset
« on: Friday 12 January 18 20:59 GMT (UK) »
Hello,

Henry WESTCOTT arrived in WA aboard the Minden on 14/10/1851 and was given "Expiree" status in December 1857, having actually completed his 7 years transportation 2 years earlier on 27/06/1855.   He was known in the Toodyay area during this time.

I have checked the online BDM Index and TROVE but failed to unearth any details.   Can anyone help please?

Thank you,

BAC3

Might be worth checking the Victorian BDMs as it appears that some of the WA convicts made there way to the Victorian goldfields after their release. I have one such associated with my tree.
