Thomas (Thos) Tuckwell - Sent to Australia as a convict 1790
« on: Friday 06 July 18 08:57 BST (UK) »
I am trying to to trace ancestors of Thomas (Thos) Tuckwell who was sentenced to 7 year transportation at his trial in 1789. I think his parents were Richard and Sarah Tuckwell from Kempsford, Gloustershire and his siblings were: Bettey Tuckwell born 1757, Sarah Tuckwell born 1754 and Richard Tuckwell born 1755 but I have nothing to trace his parents.

Can any one help please.

Thank you

This might be better on the Australian board. Just had a quick look and it seems he came to Australia in 1790 on the 'Surprise'. I will have a bit more of a look and see what happened to him.

Thank you every one. Is it possible that Richard's parents are William (1691 to 1761) and Sybil (nee Herbert 1698 to 1769).

Is there other information about Sarah Weight?
