Thanks, Jefff.

I think the second marriage of Sarah is this:

Record_ID: 2446

Grooms_Forenames: Robert
Grooms_Age: full

I read newspaper clippings in the link a couple of days ago and was fascinated. It is difficult to work out what really happened.

I have another newspaper clipping which is entitled: 'Poachers still in the Dean' which refers to this case and is written about a century after the event. It also says: 'They were deported to France to serve their sentence and all four died before their time was up.' (Maybe they were on a prison ship in the channel waiting for their journey on 'Clyde' as it only sailed twice a year.

Then I read the post on here that says that Thomas Gwilliam died in the York Hospital in Western Australia many years later.

I will have to concentrate on finding the information regarding Thomas and George's death from Australian records...if there are any.
