Thankyou for all your help with suggestions. I will check the census and also the deaths and see if I can find either one of the James Wickham with the father listed as James.

I have been swaying to the one who is a convict as he seems to likely fit the James Care Wickham in my family. Later descendants have reverted back and using Wickham as their surname here in Australia. I have checked different records and have not seen anyone withe the surname of Carewickham only Wickham.
Thankyou again for all your help.
