On the 24 Jan 1833 John married (in Sydney) an Anne MOODY who was born in County Tyrone N.Ireland about 1807. Anne was convicted of vagrancy in Londonderry on 5 Aug 1828 and sentenced to 7 years transportation. They had five children: Joseph b 1834, John b 1837, Jeremiah b 1839, Jane b 1840 and James b 1842.

George was tried at York Assizes on 10 July 1844, found guilty of burglary, and transported for 20 years. (The other defendants were Joseph and James Hudson, James Glover, George Fisher and Charles Gomersall). Sent to Norfolk Island on "Hydrabad" and then to Van Diemens Land. Interested in any information on George Heald or what became of his first family. I have information on George Heald's life and family after 1845 when he was transported.
