Bridget Ready Convict 1840
« on: Saturday 31 December 22 06:36 GMT (UK) »
I am looking for help with researching Bridget Ready.
Bridget was born 1819-1820 in either Bristol or Ireland (I believe it is Bristol) but what I know about her is set out below;

o   Bridget was sentenced to 7 years transportation for Larceny in the York,
        Kingston upon Hull Quarter Sessions on 2nd April 1840

o   Bridget aged 21 years (Police No. 213R) left the Downs harbour on the “Navarino” on 5th
        October, 1840 and arrived in Hobart Town on 17th January, 1841.

o   Married Bartholomew Williams aged 27 years married Bridget Ready aged 24 years on 9th
        May, 1845 in St. George’s Church, Cromwell Street, Battery Point, Hobart Town, Van Diemen’s
        Land (Tasmania) the service was conducted by the Rev. Henry Phibbs Fry.

o   I also know Bridget used the Ann Ready, she also changed her name to Sarah Anne Ready
        later in life.

I am looking for any information on Bridget life prior to her transportation, apart from knowing she was a house servant a Birth Date, Parents Names, Home Town, anything at all that will give me a lead.
Regards

Thank you for all the help and information on Bridget that is just a great help.

Just on Bridgetís birth records, I believe she was born in Bristol 1820-21. Bridgetís trial papers record her as 20 years, her Transportation papers show her as 21 a year later. Bridgetís Marriage record showís her age as 24 years in 1845 that puts her at 1821, depending on the month. Although at this point Iím yet to find proof, Iím going with Born in Bristol in 1820.

Again thank you very much for all this feedback
and a Great and Happy New Year to you all
Regards

A report of the committal proceedings in the Hull Packet of 17 January 1840 (page 3, col 3) names her as Bridget Riddie. The pub was the Stag Inn at Drypool.
