Allan MacLean transported 1828
« on: Friday 14 September 18 20:43 BST (UK) »
I have never looked at transportation records even though I have nine very distant relatives were transported (from the Lewises, the dodgy part of the family!).

I came across a story in the newspaper archive anout a postman on Mull who got his son (about 16) to deliver some mail in 1828.  His son stole 50 from one letter and ripped up the letter.

He was sent to Inveraray for trial and amazingly was not hung, he was given transportation for life. 

I passed this on to a friend who is interested in that area.  So had a look on Ancestry to see if I could identify the person.  There is a Allan Maclean tried on 1st December 1828 and sent out on the JOHN on 22 May 1829 which is probably him.

There is a tree on Ancestry that could have him but not sure about its accuracy.

I wonder if someone more familiar with transportation records can point me to more on him so I can pass on to my friend.

Hi,

He arrived in New South Wales on 13th September 1829. Link to a record here: https://convictrecords.com.au/convicts/mclean/allan/37345

Hopefully this will at least be a start for you!

Hope this helps.

Kind regards

Thanks, that seems to be him.

Will have another look at Ancestry trees to see if I can find any descendants.

One ceremony, recorded in one clergyman's register and then, to obey an 1810 regulation of the NSW Governor, that clergyman transmits the details through their denomination's heirarchy.  Sometimes up to five different transmittals were needed, depending on the era and the clergy's circuit.

Then again, not so sure.
Familysearch has this transcription of the marriage.


Name Allan McLEAN
Birthplace Of Morpeth 
Spouse  Christian McLUCAS
Spouse's Birthplace Of Brandon
Event Date 17 Aug 1841
Event Place At Hinton, New South Wales

So wrong birthplace (or a fib ::))
