Edward ROWITT
« on: Saturday 04 September 10 16:43 BST (UK) »
Hi everyone,
I am looking for information on my 4x Great Grandfather Edward Rowitt, he was born 1797 Stixwould Lincolnshire Uk. He was transport to Tasmania for his crimes. He was sentenced to 7 years transportation. He left England on 30th April 1833 and arrived in Tasmania 24th August 1833. The only other information I can find is that he married Ann Bostock 10th December 1838. In 1840 Edward was given certificate to say he had served his sentence. Went to mainland Australia to stay. I can't find either of them after their marriage. So any help with both Edward and Ann would be appreciated.
Thank you

Hi
I am not in a postition to help with BMD information in Victoria, but I do see a newspaper item relating to a man of the name EDWARD ROWITT. It appeared in the Victorian newspaper, The Argus.

http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/result?

It tells that he was a witness to an assault which took place in Spring Street MELBOURNE in 1849

Hi Sue,
Thank you for the information. It does tell me that Edward went to mainland Australia.
I don't know why I can't find anymore information on Edward and his wife Ann eg. death, burial.
Thanks again Sue

Hi
So you already know the couple ANN and EDWARD had children in Victoria.

I wonder, if  perhaps  there is more you know that you might share.

I notice that in the Hobart Town Courier, his name appears as Edward Rowett, maybe  this variation in his name may help.
The Hobart Town Courier 15th Sept 1837
Ticket of Leave - listing Edward Rowett. (??? )
http://trove.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/article/27966763?searchTerm=%22edward%20rowett%22

Name variation Edward  Rowett
http://www.familysearch.org/eng/search/frameset_search.asp?PAGE=/eng/search/ancestorsearchresults.asp


His direct record -
Edward Rowitt, convict conduct record.
http://search.archives.tas.gov.au/ImageViewer/image_viewer.htm?CON31-1-37,246,137,F,80
It appears the record shows he is married, with 4 children, wife Sarah ? Stockswool?, Lincoln ?
Arrived by vessel ATLAS in 1833

His new wife Ann BOSTOCK
convict conduct record

Interesting 'history' sheet.

Sue

It seems the son was from his first marriage in England - he immigrated with his family in 1860.  There is a death for an Edward ROWETT in Sydney in 1868.  He is the right age.
