I think we need to know if you made an error with his dob :).  Dates don't match with the information found in Aus.

Reading from " Charles Dickens and the Blacking Factory"...Henry Worms had 8 children,one of whom Lewis Henry emigrated to Australia to join his father. Henry was transported to Van Diemens land in 1825 and later absconded and was last heard of in Sydney...it seems Lewis may have arrived in Sydney about 1838...I know it is sketchy but it is all I have..Thanks again all.

Well this made me chuckle  ;D ;D

Good thing I'm a huge Dickens fan. If our info gets included in the next book I think we should be entitled to a percentage of the royalties.  ;) ;)

For those of us who aren't aware our Worms is of Jewish heritage and was supposedly, deported for stealing. Ironic considering the theft reports we found.  ;D ;D

He has been mentioned in a book about Dickens' life. Of course it may not be the correct worms.

Borderman, a death notice was found saying that Henry, the father of Lewis H had died at his home in London in 1879.

I have posted the 1841 census for Henry WORMS with wife Rebecca and son Lewis living with his parents Aaron and Rachel.

The death notice was in Feb 1879 with no date of death.  It appear his death was registered in Dec qtr 1878

Deaths Dec 1878 
WORMS Henry    71 years  Islington 1b/253

Henry WORMS born 1810 Whitechapel, MDX ENG to Aaron WORMS and Rachel LAMERT.  Aaron was born Bonn, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany

Henry married Rebecca NATHAN 31 Aug 1836.  Henry died 12 Dec 1878.  Rebecca died 1 Feb 1879

Lewis was their second born and eldest son.

Yes, Cando, I was thinking that, also.

However, I think there is a connection somehow.  ???

Cando, can you suggest an age for Henry the convict in 1842?

Not needed, now. I have looked at the Tasmanian record. Very interesting indeed. He was 57 when transported for a term of 14 years. He was very well behaved in Tassie. There is the word 'Run" on his file.

So that has him born in 1768 and 74 in 1842.

At time of transportation he left behind 8 children and a deceased wife.Grays ? Lane, Holborn.

His occupations were ?gold, washer of silver and confectioner.

No info  :)

A link to his Tasmanian records.  YOB varies between 1768 and 1774.

Hi.

The Proceedings of the Old Bailey for the conviction of Henry Worms on 25th Jan 1825 has him at 57 years of age.

Morris Worms, 14 was also found guilty but his Judgement respited.
