Antigua Court Martial
« on: Thursday 21 June 18 07:03 BST (UK) »
Hi All

I am researching a John Thompson who was transported to NSW Australia as a convict on the "Lord Sidmouth" which sailed from London on 20 September 1818.

He was sentenced to life imprisonment by an Antigua Court Marshall.

Can anyone help or point me in the right direction as to how I can find out any details of the Court Marshall. As he sailed from London I guess he was imprisoned in the UK after the Court Marshall.

Thanks

Apologies for the duplication, I wasn't sure whether to put the thread on the UK forum or the Other Countries Forum.

I have now had some valuable feedback on the Other Countries forum so in order to eliminate any confusion I am closing this site.

If anyone is interested in following this thread you can do so at http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=795496.msg6521397
