I've just been to

www.parishregister.com

and used their search facility for St Mary Whitechapel 1813-1823 and the search returns Thomas Blackberry and William Henry Blackberry. You have to pay to see their transcriptions.

I'm currently offering London Metropolitan Archives look-ups on an on-going basis and can add you to my look-up list, let me know (see my LMA posts at the top of the London & Middx boards)

Hi

This is all I could find for BLACKBERRY in  'St Mary Whitechapel'  wrong christian names for father but pass it on anyway  :

BLACKBERRY Thomas
born  :  5 July 1816  Baptised :  30 Aug 1818
Parents  :  James a Labourer and Margaret
Address :  Castle Street

BLACKBERRY  William Henry
born :  22 May 1818  Baptised  :  16 Aug 1818
Parents :  James a Labourer and Margaret
Adddress : Castle Street

It might be worth a 1841 address lookup for Castle Street in case they are some relation?
Only says Castle Street so assume in the Whitechapel area?

Good luck
Reyz

Essex  :  Lodge Wheal.
London UK : Bird, Bogg (Lightermen), Brittle, Chamberlane. Perry. Spencer.
Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire  :  Smith.

Given that he had 'history' this may be worth a look:

1841   HO107/737/21
James Blageby, 20, french polisher, prisoner in Westminster penitentiary.

I`m wanting any information on James Blackberry born Whitechapel 1822. His fathers name was Thomas, his brothers names being Thomas, George and William. James was transported to Tasmania in 1843 on the ship Forfarshire. This information was taken from his convict records. James` partner was Ann Condon[alias Duffy] also a convict. We think they never married. They settled in the township of Westbury Tasmania. I have found James on the I.G.I but it doesn`t give much information at all. Can anybody help please.

Hi, I am too descended from 'James Blackberry' via his daughter Elizabeth Page. I am stumped by this too. I recently found this in a book authored by Lois Nyman, 'The West Tamar People' (1996), p. 69:

"A man who also wished to dissociate himself from his past was Jack Wood, who had come out to the colony as a teenage convict. He was assigned to a settler at Invermay, or 'The Swamp' as it was then called, and worked on a dairy farm. There he married one of the servants. When his sentence had expired he determined to live an entirely new life with a new identity. He moved from where he was known and although he realised that free settlers were adept at sensing if a man had been a convict, changed his name to 'Blackberry' and hoped that his knew life would never be touched by any stigma. In the 1860s he moved to Notley Hills, where he raised his family."

Is the a different person, the same person, an incorrect story?

Hi Apdewit

The information from the book The West Tamar People written by Lois Nyman is incorrect. James Blackberry was a convict his convict details are posted in this link below.

  http://search.archives.tas.gov.au/ImageViewer/image_viewer.htm?CON33-1-44,246,9,F,60

My late aunt done a lot of research on James Blackberry and she could never find any link to the surname Wood/s.We are sure it was just pure fabrication of another researcher.James and his partner Ann Condon did live in Notley Hills.James and Ann Blackberry were my GG Grandparents.Their daughter Isabella Frances Blackberry was my G Grandmother.
