    1. [PRISONS-UK] Prisoner records
    2. Kenneth Scott
    3. I have prison records of a few hundred prisoners between the ages of about 8 and 16 who were held at Parkhurst Prison. Many of these were transported to Australia on ships such as the Orient, Radcliffe and Adelaide. The records are from mid 1844 and early 1845. I cannot discern an order to the records. If someone out there thinks they may have a family member who would be in this collection you can email and I will try to find a record for the individual. If you write and can provide the name of a ship and the date of sailing it would help me to locate such record Kenneth Scott Dunedin, Florida

    1. [PRISONS-UK] Henry Craddock/Clavering/Jones 1824
    2. Mary
    3. Dear Lister, I suspect the above character is probably a 3x great uncle. The great uncle in question was born in Wolverhampton in 1824. A notorious character of the same name and from that area and of similar birth date was active in Northumberland, and around the West Midlands. He was sentenced to transportation but that was transmuted. In 1851 he was in prison in London, in 1861 someone with is initials was in Dartmoor. Henry when operating in the North claimed to have been married, and also claimed his parents lived in Carlisle. I believe the latter was fiction. A brother Arthur Craddock, born 1831,and definitely a 3x great uncles was also a criminal and in 1851 was sentenced for a string of offences. He was sentenced to transportation but was sent to Gibraltar between 1853-1857. His licence was revoked and he also disappears from any records I have found. Compared to his possible brother he was much less of a hardened criminal, but may have been involved with Henry’s offence. Both seemed to behave very well in prison. Is there anyway of tracing what became of these two, and where they may have died. I’ve drawn a total blank. Best wishes, Mary Sent from Mail for Windows 10

    1. [PRISONS-UK] Sidney Levi Smith
    2. Mark Lingenfelder via
    3. Hi all, I am looking for information on a certain Sidney Levi Smith (alias Sidney Bernard Smith), who served a prison sentence in the UK between 1944 and 1969. I believe he was in a London Prison, possibly in Hackney, but I am not too sure of this. As I am unfamiliar with British genealogical research, could anyone advise me on how I could go about getting information about this person. Kind regards, Mark Lingenfelder Durban, South Africa marklingenfelder@outlook.com Sent from Windows Mail

    1. [PRISONS-UK] 1901 census Thomas Edward Lunt
    2. Ken and Rita Inspire
    3. Hi, The subject was my G/dad. In the 1901 census he was the guest of his Majesty at Walton on the Hill Liverpool. He is listed as a news vendor, and of own account. I believe he had been arrested for having a fight with another young guy and my G/dad used a knife in the fight. If I could obtain the recorded copies it would be appreciated. If you could let me know the charges first. I am trying to complete my family genealogy for my New Zealand daughters. As I am getting close to my “best used by date”. My G/d became an Engineer on a ship S.S.Sagamore WW1 and was torpedoed, losing his legs up to his knees. He unfortunaately was not a very nice man. But understandable. No pain killers in those days. I did get to know him a wee bit before I went to Scotland to complete my Student Graduate Engineering. He would come and watch m play soccer at away games when I played in Liverpool “A” and reserve team. He had two walking sticks which he always used, in fact once to beat me up. His youngest son Cyril and my uncle only 6 years older than me and the neighbour from next door saved me. I asked him why he had been such an angry man and as he walked away he just told me. “Every night I go to bed and I see the ten frozen body’s of my crew mates, laying in the bottom of the lifeboat.” Thank You for bearing with me. Thank You again for what ever help you may be able to give me or not. Best Regards Ken Berry

    3. Try the British Newspaper Archive: http://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk There's coverage in a number of papers about a 17-year-old Thomas Lunt getting 6 months for stabbing and wounding another newspaper boy, his rival for the affections of a young woman. He was tried and sentenced in May 1901, having been arrested (and imprisoned pending trial) in late March - the time of the census.

    3. Hi, Subject is my G/D. As you see he appears on the England census in Gaol. I set my printer thinking it would give me some of the family. Came back to the printer after having Coffee, with my wife. “Lo and Behold”, it was all the guys in the jug with him. I was wondering if I can find out what his offence was. On the census he is described as a “News Vendor” and of “own account”. By 3rd March 1917 he was in a lifeboat with 17 other guys. He was 3rd Engineer on the S S Sagamore. On the 12th of March there was only 7 of them alive when the S S Deucalion spotted the lifeboat in the South Atlantic. Rescued them and headed for Cape Town. The all had feet or parts of legs and one guy had both legs amputated. due to Frostbite and Gangrene. I am hoping you maybe able to help to find out why he was a quest of His Majesty. He suffered badly from Post Traumatic Stress so you can imagine the whole family suffered till they all moved out, just prior to WW2 and his wife my mum’s, mum had died. hope you may be able to give me some help or point me in the right direction and that will just about complete his life story for my family genealogy.

    2. Cathy McBey
    3. Hi Janice Um, if I had an ancestor who was in Fremantle Prison (Australia) around 1854-1860ish, would you be able to help me? My ancestor was George Hanks (alias Charles Rock). He was born about 1928, reportedly in Hereford, UK and was in both Dartmoor Prison and Oxford Prison before being transported to Western Australia onboard Ramillies in 1854. I have all the details from the WA Convict website for him, and a few other interesting details of the crime he was transported for and life since marrying and having 3 children (1871ish) but have drawn a blank on any prison records. I also as yet can't find record of his birth or confirmation of his parents - recorded as John Hanks (a tanner) and Sarah Walker on his death certificate (but I think these could be wrong). There is note elsewhere that his mother was Sarah Whittaker, bus still no proof, and not sure if that was her maiden or married name. I know this is the Prisons Uk list, but just hoping. Any help greatly appreciated!
