WATSON - this family originally from Scotland, possibly Edinburgh. Then London and Middlesex -  the parishes of St Luke's Old Street, MDX and St Giles in Cripplegate. Convict William Watson  arrived at Fremantle aboard the 'Pyrenees' in 1853. We believe we've traced the stories of his mother Ann Watson d1845 (maiden name unknown), his older brothers James Watson d1843 and David Watson d1844, his older sister Ann Watson d1893 and his younger sister Catherine Watson b1832 who seemed to have spent her years in and out of the City of London workhouse; she died in 1899. To date (and despite our best endeavours)  we haven't been able to pinpoint a death/burial date for John Watson, a silversmith, born c1791-1795 in Scotland, husband of Ann, father of convict William Watson.

MADDOCK - originally from the tiny village of Payhembury in Devon, not far from Exeter. Convict Henry Jesse Maddock arived at Fremantle aboard the 'Pyrenees' in 1853. In the last few years we've made contact with the descendants of Henry Jesse Maddock's siblings - who were born,  lived and (some) died at the 'Blue Ball' not far from Payhembury.

MELBIN - also spelled Melburn and Melben. Arthur Melburn, the convict said he was from Liverpool, in Lancashire. He arrived in Fremantle aboard the 'Clara' in 1857. Very little is  known about Arthur's life prior to his conviction in 1855, although we have established that his mother, Mary Ann Melburn visited him in 1856 in gaol prior to Arthur's removal from Kirkdale  prison. At the time Mary Ann listed her address as Ford Street in Liverpool.

COYNE - from the Clifden area in County Galway. Martin Coyne and wife Mary (nee Walsh) were  farmers. The exact townland hasn't been identified yet. Their sons John Coyne (born c1834, convicted 1849) and Thomas Coyne (born c1818, convicted 1850) were also transported to Fremantle in 1853; John - aboard the 'Phoebe Dunbar'; Thomas -  aboard the 'Robert Small'.
