I guess I should let you all know of my Rawsthorne links then.
Thomas RAWSTHORNE, born about 06 Apr 1795 in Kirkby-Lonsdale, Westmoreland,
England. He was transported on the Recovery (1) to Australia in 1819.
Convicted in Lancaster, England on March 20 1819 after being arrested in
Kirkby for housebreaking, and sentenced to 14 years.
He married Sophia Jane COLLITS 30 Oct 1826 in Castlereagh, NSW, Australia.
I believe that the parents of Thomas were Thomas RAWSTHORNE and Jane
(UNKNOWN), but this has never been proved. It seems that as you get to the
1700's in England, the records become almost impossible to access from
outside the country.
