This site doesn't pretend to be a "Family History Website" - it's just a collection of bits and pieces, a Work in Progress.

I'll be posting narratives for various of my ancestors as and when I get round to tidying them up. Names which are underlined in bold will at some point be hyperlinked to narratives for those people.

Removal Order - William ANDREW, Catherine his wife, Asa and Ann their children )
kjthistory: (Bideford)
.
From the evidence of his birth place, parents’ abode, father’s death date and children’s names, I am confident that this William Andrew(s) is the younger brother of my ggg-grandfather James Andrew.

From the evidence of their mother’s will (“to my son William Andrew currently under sentence of transportation”) and the occupation of School Master given in transportation records, I am reasonably confident that this man is that William Andrew(s) who was found guily of larceny on 21st July 1838 and transported to Van Diemen’s Land.


The original document has no paragraph breaks; for clarity I have inserted paragraph breaks at every change of abode.
