There's a Pusey in Oxfordshire of it may be a misspelling of Pewsey not far from Marlborough in Wiltshire?

ANOTHER PERFECT HIT!
I did not recognise it as a misspelling of Pewsey.
Pewsey is where William lived in the decade before he was sent off to Aus.

The proof is overwhelming!

Am having trouble deciphering the curly handwriting.
Can anyone transcribe this for me?
I can make out bits here and there but not all.

It also reads "in prison before" ..."Once for stealing wine 12 months"

Yet another hit!
William was indeed imprisoned previously and I think it was for 12 months.
Some kind of stealing offence.

In this marriage permission his name is spelled 'Woodham'
The police number '1306' confirms it as same the person

Just to be clear, how can you be sure this is a marriage application?

Is there any way to determine if he stayed in Tas or returned to the UK?

Also, his son migrated to NZ in 1860.
Is there any way to investigate whether the son or father ever tried to cross the ditch
to meet each other? My guess is that the two were completely cut off from each other.

The son lived out his life in NZ.
