The book is about the 236 convicts who were carried aboard the 6th trip of the found guilty transportation ship ‘Mauls’ to New South Wales in December 1832, none of whom knew exactly what fate had in shop for them. It has to do with who they were, exactly what they did to be carried and exactly what happened to them.The inspiration for it originates from a remote ancestor of mine; a Pembrokeshire farm labourer founded guilty of horse stealing and transported for life, and who Ten Years after showing up in Australia married an Irish lady. They had children, who died in infancy, and 17 years after arriving in Australia and having actually gained his liberty they cruised for San Francisco, and 18 years after that applied to end up being an US resident. I thought that he couldn’t be the only one with a tale to tell and that’s shown to be the case.The ages of the men and kids varied from simply 13 years of ages to 54,
and between them they left 46 better halves and 133 children. Their criminal offenses ranged from horse stealing, to counterfeiting, to theft, to mugging, to stealing apples. They were sent out from all corners of the UK, and one had actually even been sent from Guyana in South America. They originated from all walks of life: labourers, sailors, tradesmen, soldiers, urchins and artisans; the informed and the uneducated.Whilst a lot of the convicts’stories are quick and quite normal the unique function of this book is I believe that nobody else has actually set out to
look at one entire set of convicts who just happened to be on the exact same transport ship.Review Copies are readily available– please e-mail if you would like a copy in exchange for a sincere review.MEGAN ROBERTS Megan is a retired Business Director from the building and construction, engineering
