Thank you Dave.  I had thought it likely that he was an orphan as I couldnít find a record of anyone writing a petition, or plea, for him against his transportation.

From what you have said I agree that wealthy Marylebone William is not yours. Have you tried tracing William through the censuses and possibly marriages etc to confirm that you are correct? Eliminating the wrong ones can often be as useful as finding the right ones.

Have you located all of his convict records at Ďthe other endí? Do you have his Australian marriage and death certificates which may, depending on time and place (and knowledge of informant on d/c), give his parents names?

Can I clarify "Marylebone" as William's PoB? What's the source?

The record I checked has the birth in the Parish of St Mary le Bow at the house in Cheapside of William and Ann Catharine Ward.  William born 9 March 1799, baptised 14 Apr 1799.
A nonconformist ceremony, Abraham Rees, Protestant Dissenting Minister officiating.

Also spotted the baptism on 14 Apr 1799 of William John Ward, father William, a hosier and mother Sarah, place Norton Folgate. Christ Church, Spitalfields, Tower Hamlets.

What is the source of the 14 April 1799 date of birth on the convict record previously posted?

The William Ward born in St.Mary le Bow is the one most sited on Ancestry trees, which is extremely unlikely.    Marylebone instead of Mary le Bow; a middle class family; mentioned in his fatherís will and left a chest of drawers by his aunt in 1836.

The date 14th April 1799 is interesting.  Iíd previously ignored that as itís the date of the Cheapside baptism.

We need Hamish Slade who added that information to the records in 2016.

LilyM - don't know how many times I've trawled thru' this thread and you post re Mary-le-Bow didn't register - apologies.
I've pencilled in chasing the William John Ward, parents William/Sarah to eliminate him from my enquiries.
