OK so nowhere did I infer/imply that FW was a convict! We were discussing his obituary.

Yes,  but it was not only Obits ... your reply had also mentioned bigamy, convicts, change of name etc.    :D  :D

My lengthy reply was in reply to the following post  :D  :D  :D

I think it was bigamy in those days but once they got to Aus who was going to check? Many married convicts male and female declared themselves single. Didn't mention that in the obituary!
Its a tricky one with the many spelling variations and as a researcher we used to call them "swimmers"
