John CRONING, born 1837, Blarney, County Cork.
« on: Wednesday 06 March 19 14:27 GMT (UK) »

John CRONING was convicted at Plymouth Assizes to 10 years transportation on 11/04/1851, but after spending the best part of 6 years in Parkhurst and Portsmouth Prisons he was released early on 11/03/1857. 

On conviction he stated his father was dead and that his mother, Elizabeth COLLING (?), lived in Blarney, County Cork, with his two sisters and a younger brother.

His "Devon" story is a little obscure (he had only lived there 4 or 5 months apparently), as are his future movements after 11/03/1857, but I hope someone may be able to help?

Thank you,
