Thank you......yes could well be another ship. great thought.   
Well he was sentenced in 1839 and received 7 years , He doesn't appear on 1841 census ( that I have found....his wife and children do) but he is back at home by that would have been after his sentence anyway; and while I know that it would have been difficult to get home had he been transported it is not beyond possibility, though perhaps it does suggest he didn't get transported.
Thanks for the interesting thoughts, its an are of genealogy I have not encountered much.

Thanks for that, 'Paid' and Pardoned are good possibilities. Paid less likely perhaps as his sentence was 7 years transportation. THe entry above him was the thief and Jesse was the handler, and they both got same sentence. It looks like the thief entry for disposal says 'Bermuda' I wasn't aware that was a destination of transportation so again not sure.  But if Jesse's entry was 'Pardoned' I wonder where I can corroborate that. The newspapers only have reference to the convictions.


The attached refers to a 1839 conviction for Jesse Johnson (bn 1795). This document is the Prison Hulk Leviathan and the two column refer to Gaoler's report and How disposed of.  Jesse's is the bottom entry and I am trying to understand what the comment is for the right column 'How disposed of'.  I don't actually know where he was transported to either and can't find reference to that. Is anyone familiar with what looks like 'Paw' as a disposal? 
Jesse was from Sutton Mandeville in Wiltshire and not to be confused with a convict of the ame name from Wells Somerset who was sent to Tasmania the following year.
Any help understanding this entry would be greatly appreciated.


I know this is years and years after the initial enquiry but I thought I would just write on here for the sake of anyone who searches at some point.... has the burials for this cemetery.  It is free to search and it tells you the date of the burial and name of the person and how many people are in the grave.  You then can pay 2.50 (have to buy a min 5 voucher) to access the actual register of burial.  In the free part you also get the grave reference though it doesn't tell you whether or not there is an actual stone.
Anyway thought I would add this, having just found seven people from one family in one hit.

That is on the watch I also will and bequeath to Ann what other money I may have in the bank but for my funeral expenses to be paid out of she and for my ungrateful ? I?

I just wanted to compare my slightly uncomplete transcription of the attached will and to see it through fresh eyes which mine are far from....
If anyone is more accustomed to reading the old script I'd love to know what you see here, I think I have most but certainly not all....

Interestingly enough, the only Emma McCandlish I can find was born in March 1841 in Manchester.


Thanks for that. Not her I'm afraid. This Emma was more than likely Irish, in that George Limerick was, and their daughter Jane Adelaide Limerick was also born in Ireland and later married twice in Scotland.

A possible ref to George maybe here


Hi Monica, thank you for that information.  That thread regarding Jane Limerick is certainly the same one I'm looking at.
The link to George is interesting, I can't cross reference to be sure that it is him.  The link provided on Findmypast, is there but it actually relates to someone else not George Limerick which is frustrating.  Thanks for the links.
