I am currently researching those who were buried in Liverpool, NSW. Australia's earliest burial ground for a burial register and the stories of those who lay beneath the ground. Joseph Rawson is among those he died of lung disease 24th JAN 1821 - I only knew he was transported for high treason and came on the Isabella, thank you so much for this page and the history, I assure you Joseph Rawson will have his story told kind regards Gail Newman

Rebecca Turner
I am 4x great grand daughter of Rebecca Turner (1784) Who was first cousin to William Turner (ex 1817) and Edward Turner, transported. Her younger brother Thomas was imprisoned for 6mths hard labour& was brother in law to George Brassington and James Taylor. The Hawksleys didn't get directly involved...not being quite as interconnected with the other families as they later became links to the Bramleys and Booths among others..I have quite a family tree in South Wingfield being descended from James Hawksley who married Rebecca and his brother George who married a Sarah Turner who I haven't been able to place( only her mother was listed at her baptism.)
I have enjoyed your website greatly and using the various family trees have shown my family links with both William Turner and, more distantly, with Isaac Ludlam.
Hopefully this a little interesting to someone out there.

Dear Sylvia

I have now found your name on the Home page. Thank you so much for the wonderful website and all this amazing information. I was born an Elliott and would like to connect with anyone who has an interest in the Elliott and Beresford lines from Alfreton. I am exploring DNA links as well as archive record links.

Best wishes

I am researching my wife's family (Bettison) and have just discovered that Thomas Bettison (her 3 x great uncle) was involved. I would like to buy a copy of the book: Transported for Treason by Ralph Hawkins.
We are in Australia and if you could help
it would be very much appreciated.
