Sorry, lost track of this thread and just come in from some hot, heavy work in the garden. So which images will I look for on FMP?
I would like to know if FMP had the images of the parish records for Hail Western Huntingdonshire so that I can see them as I only have A and they only have an index. The baptisms are between 1820 they are for
Eliza 11 April 1819,
James b 1820 I don't have his Bap date
Elizabeth 17 March 1822
Samuel 2 Oct 1825 d April 1827
Jane 1830 d Sep 1831
Ann 1830 d Sep 1831
Charles 25 Nov 1832
George 25 Nov 1832
Samuel 10 Mar 1839
William 10 March 1839
It appears they only have Huntingdonshire burials,
and marriages 1754-1837
I have checked some of he baps you have listed and they do not even have the transcriptions.
Although transcriptions, there are some DENNIS baptisms available for Hail Weston on FreeReeg.
Thanks for looking. A don't have a bap for James and he is the one I am looking for.
I was just snooping around on Family Search and this popped up
James Denniss baptised 2 April 1820 Hail Weston father James Denniss mother Sarah. What do you think?
That is him Thanks AM. I have just sent an email to the lady who put that info in the Monaropioneers Newsletter on the Dennis family to let her know that James was a convict.
I have just been able to get into his conduct record on Tasmania Names Index.
He was single and had been imprisoned 8 times for various things one for desertion. His character was bad. He was sentenced to Norfolk Island and sent 9 March 1852 arriving back in VDL 1855. Ticket of leave 1858 but revoked in 1859. Conditional Pardon granted 3 April 1860.
woo hoo he was a bad ******. Can we find anything out about him being imprisoned 8 times like what his crims were, my god he didn't learn did he.
I had a look at Tasmania Names Index and can't find any of this, so AM can you please tell me what to put in for this info to appear.
Is this the same chap?

When the index comes up just enter his name in the little search bar at the top. No need to put anything else in. Hit the little search thingy to the right.
All James Dennis' will come up with a year underneath. Click on the one you want, in this case it will say 'Convict 1842'. Then it will show some records. The one you want most is the one that starts with CON. Click on that and the page of his conduct book with come up. You may have to scroll down the page a bit. Bob's your uncle.
If you have trouble I'll just put the link here for you.
The writing might need a bit of deciphering. It's terrible.
Here it is anyway...
Have you seen newspaper reports of his indictment in 1842 for robbery of a youth -along with his co-accused?
Just had a quick read of that Sue, seems to be a mixup between newspaper report & that of the above when referring to the robbed chappy. His name is said to be Thomas Ashpole & the convicted co-accused was John Howard.
p.s. there was another James Dennis busy about the same time 1841 in Durham. I wondered of he moved about a bit.?
It mentions Joseph Gilbert and ? Ashenole?
Wouldn't be surprised
How rude!!! Us talking about Shelly's rellies like this.
Does that say 'Howard on board tried with me?
..we are researchers & reporters on past persons are we not?
I think the name is 'Thomas Ashenole', -not too bad really. The initial "T" is a bit slanty.
Yes. John Howard is on the Eden. I will have a look at him......
And here is Howard...it states that Gilbert is on the ship as well.
Nice bunch of hoodlums.....sorry Shelly.
Good grief Howard died in Port Arthur.
In 1837 a James Dennis appears in the County of Huntingdonshire Register of all Person Charged with Indictable Offences, age 16 and was convicted of Larceny, he received 7 days imprisonment and whipped.
Separate names with a comma.
