Prison Hulk Euryalus 1833 to 1835
« on: Sunday 05 September 10 03:00 BST (UK) »
Hi there

I am researching my convict ancestor and am trying to locate any information on his time on the prison hulk Euryalus.

He was convicted at the Old Bailey on 17/10/1833 and spent time on the Euryalus at Chatham until his transportation to Tasmania in May 1835.

He was about 12 years old at the time of his conviction.
Name: William Gadsby

Any assistance or information would be most welcome.

Thank you

Hi, my 3xgt uncle was also on the Euryalus, in 1838. You've probably seen this, but in case you haven't:
