I guess we need to know why SecondLife thinks it's who he's looking for, given than the year and place of birth don't match to William the convict.

VERY VERY VERY SPECULATIVE. 

NSW 1841 Census Newcastle

Return # 33
Mary Ann COOPER … in her establishment there’s :
2 married males
4 single males
2 married females
2 single females


Of the six males
4 were born in the colony
1 is otherwise free
1 is bonded under a private assignment
None are aged under two
1 is aged two to under seven
2 are aged seven to under fourteen
1 is aged fourteen and under twenty-one
2 are aged twenty-one and under forty-five
0 are aged forty-five and under sixty
0 are aged sixty and upwards.


Of the four females
2 were born in the colony
1 arrived free
1 is otherwise free
0 are aged under two
1 is aged two to under seven
1 are aged seven to under fourteen
0 is aged fourteen and under twenty-one
2 are aged twenty-one and under forty-five
0 are aged forty-five and under sixty
0 are aged sixty and upwards.

9 of these 10 are Church of England
1 is Roman Catholic

2 are Mechanics/Artificers
8 are other persons not included in following classes:
(so none of the 8 are) Landed Proprietors, Merchants, Bankers Professional, shopkeepers, retail dealers, Mechanics /Artificers, Shepherds/keepers of sheep, Gardeners, Stockmen, engaged in Agriculture, Domestic Service.

Mary Ann COOPER’s establishment is of Wood, Unfinished, Inhabited.

NOTICE, IF (and it is a huge IF, very very speculative IF…) anyway, notice that there’s no mention of William COOPER by name at this establishment.   

I wonder about how our OP's ancestor connects to any of the William Cooper/Cowper chaps in New South Wales in the 1820s...

Thank you so much for your help.

I do have the baptism certificate for the 25 Apr 1799 in Darenth Kent.

Why do I think the Wm Cooper sent to Australia may be mine, well I cannot find him anywhere in the UK.

I am unsure whether WC sentenced at Nottinghamshire Assizes is mine as that, even in today's terms, is a long way from where he lived.

If he was sent from Woolwich then that is more likely.

Think I need to sit down and read through all your fabulous answers, thank you so much for your help
