Sorry Trish. I missed your comment about William's wife and sons.  Do you have their names so I can easily find them?

Sydney STEPHEN and family arrive from London. 1828.First to Tasmania.

Sydney STEPHEN was a wealthy barrister. Other news items show he held country property.
I am not sure whether it was a city or rural property your William absconded from.

Thank you, everyone, for your wonderful info and suggestions.

I had hoped William BLAND would help solve a question with somebody I'm investigating. I have Benjamin and Emma Toyer (nee Bland) arriving in Sydney in 1855. They go to Dungog where they establish a brickmaking business. Apparently, they went there to join a member of Emma's family, and I thought this William Bland might be the connection since he was allocated to the area (Patterson's River) as a convict.

Looks like I'll have to keep searching!

Thanks again
