Convicts: Eyles and Grigery
« on: Tuesday 15 May 18 02:25 BST (UK) »
Hello,  I am trying to find out what happened to George Grigery who was an accomplice of Joseph Eyles who stole 40 lbs. of lead from William Fitzhugh of the Parish of Millbrook, Southampton, Hampshire.  Joseph was sent as a convict to Australia, but what happened to George?
Thank you

Was your Joseph transported to New South Wales arriving 14 December 1801.  If so then likely the following info will help in your quest about George,  as it gives date of Joseph’s trial:  Joseph Eyles aged 23, Tried at Hampshire 10 January 1797, sentenced to seven years beyond the seas.

Thanks Majm,  I can still only find that George was with Joseph Eyles.  I am trying to find out more about his family, life, occupation etc.  My computer didn't seem to be registering that the request had gone through so I re=wrote and re submitted my request.  Hence duplicate postings.
 This is the Joseph that I am searching.  The link you provided  doesn't seem to open.
Thanks for your help. Much appreciated.

May I suggest you consider contacting a Moderator and ask for the two threads to be merged.  I have no difficulty in opening either one. 

Also perhaps ask for the merged thread to move initially to Hampshire board ?

In meanwhile, Mr Google suggested GRIGERY may be alternative spelling for GREGORY and so I offer following for you to follow up:
