William BRAHAM aka YARNELL
« on: Tuesday 18 December 18 16:18 GMT (UK) »
Hello,

William BRAHAM aka YARNELL was probably born in Nottingham C1842.   His father was a Labourer, William BRAHAM, who, in or about 1861, was living at 7 Cherry Street, Nottingham.
However, all his convict records between 1857 and 1864 insist he be called YARNELL!!   His last record indicates that on discharge his destination was Newark.

Other than these criminal records I can find no further details for him.   Could someone help please :-[

There seems to be lots of doubts here - "probably" and "about" etc.

What definite records have you found for this guy? How do you know the convict records for William Yarnell relate to a William Braham?
Edmonds/Edmunds - mainly Sussex
DeBoo - London
Green - Suffolk
Parker - Sussex
Kemp - Essex
Farrington - Essex
Boniface - West Sussex

The information given is as accurate as the prison records allow, which also quote his alternative names.
