William Kingston was sentenced about 1823 to "be hung by the neck until he was dead". for being a member of a group who stole several items of cloth and three dozen pairs of shoes from someone near where they lived, presumably in Gloucestershire.
Because Tasmania desperately needed people from a farming background this sentence was commuted to transportation for life to Tasmania. The Tasmanian governor, (then Van Diemen's Land) commuted the sentence in 1839, and granted William an unconditional pardon.

But the officials in Tasmania were a lot more generous than those in the old country, and in 1832, seven years before the pardon was granted, William married Ann Clutterbuck, in Hobart. She was from India, not the East Indies. My grandfather, Montvill Smith, and his brother more so, who were the grandsons of Ann and William had noticeably darker complexions than was common among Anglo-Saxons in Tasmania born nearly a hundred and fifty years ago. I can't find much about Ann Clutterbuck but am still searching. Regards, Alan Smith, Brisbane

Elizabeth Muriel Peace Byers (nee Clutterbuck) from Balclutha in New Zealand was my grandmother, and I am interested in correcting with her descendants. Elizabeth and her husband, George Hawker Byers of Sterling had my mother in 1948, but gave her up fur adoption when George died.i know there was one other daughter, joy was last known to be in Brisbane Australia.

I have found a note in my files, that says the Clutterbucks of Geelong are relatives of the Lockes. The note says that the old lady has photos of Edward and or Frederick Locke but won't let anyone have a look at them. This note was from 2003 and she may be dead now. The note was from a conversation with Ed Synott who is also a descendant of Edward Frederick Locke who was a convict and arrive in 1849 on the Eden. He married Fanny Davison and they had 12 children all over the Bellarine Peninsula around Geelong.
If anyone has a cost at or any details of these Clutterbucks. Sjkeys@ please. Or 0409028982
