All Saints church, Kingston upon Thames, baptisms for children born to Thomas Mansell and Abigail Mansell:
Abigail Mary Mansell 15 Oct 1843
Jane Mansell 8 Feb 1846
Thomas Mansell 16 Jul 1848
Charles Mansell 23 Mar 1851
Edward Mansell 26 Sep 1853
Louisa Mansell 19 Aug 1855
Sarah Mansell 7 Feb 1858

Deaths: Abigail Mansell, registered in 1862 in Kingston, in county of Middlesex/Surrey Volume 2a, Page 132 (This death would appear to match Abigail Galley as opposed to her daughter Abigail who seemed to live on and possibly marry in the 1870's).

HappyFeet,

I hope that Abigail had found happiness in her marriage. I could not find her anywhere in 1861. What an awful outcome for these two siblings; Edmund and his sister Abigail. Do you know what happened to Edmund in Australia? - apart from him being awarded 1,000 compensation from the British parliament.

I dont know whether you have access to UK records, but I've done my best to find some more positive findings for you regarding Edmund's siblings, but don't feel as I have managed to find any. :'(

Please let us know if you still need help, and I hope others will also check for the siblings too in case I missed anything and continue to add advice / ideas that I may have missed.

Wow, thank you to everyone who has helped me with this.  You are right, I have been busy, been away off and on, but should have noticed all this sooner.

Edmund was one of the lucky ones in Australia, as he was assigned to a caring master and he stayed on the one property, (which was out in the sticks, as we say) for most of his life.  It was a sheep station and he was a shepherd. He always claimed he was innocent and just before he died he did get justice but did not live very long to enjoy it.   

In August 1881 the newspapers of the day were still reporting that Edmund wanted the compensation in cash and that the government were still deciding whether to give him land or cash.

He did end up with Land, 320 acres of it, not far from the property he worked on - but whether he bought it or it was bought for him I don't know.   Edmund Galley died 6.11.1885 - I haven't been able to find a death certificate for him as yet, so don't know what happened to him, only probate records showing his date of death.   His widow died 2 years later.

Thanks again to you all.

Hello, I have recently started a One-name-study for the name of Galley and have been looking at convicts transported for their crimes.. Edmund is a cause celebre and I've been in touch with a few people about him.  I have now produced a summary of him if you are interested and also know quite a lot about his brother Charles.

What is your connection with the Galleys?  Are you interested in the study?  If so please get in touch.  Meg Galley-Taylor
