    The state library of Queensland also have WILLIAM RADON transported on the Hillsborough, sailing October 1798 for New South Wales. Could be your man.

I suppose finding, or not finding, William Radon as a convict would help.
    I was looking at that and wondering. Details are on the Old Bailey Online

    The description for William Radon/Raydon tried Jan 1798 is 26, 5f 6, fair complexion dark hair, dark eyes [?], Cork, carpenter.

    There was an earlier 1797 conviction for a William Regan. He was 24, 5f 4, fresh complexion, brown hair, grey eyes, Cork, carpenter. He got six months and a fine.

    The earlier records I viewed via ancestry, listed William Regan as a carpenter by occupation so maybe it is the same man.

    British library newspapers have 2 articles in Jan 1798 under William Radon but the site's playing up at the moment. I'll let someone else have a look - I need some sleep.

    Hello olliecat,

    Thanks for the help. I can't find any reference to a William RADON/RAYDON in the Convict Index or in the Colonial Secretary Index on the NSW State records site. I searched using William and r% and 'Hillsborough' but found nothing. Cork, carpenter on the 'Hillsborough' it looks like the same man. He married a convict:

    Vessel: 'Atlas' Master: Richrd Brooks Weight: 435
    Origin: 29 Nov 1801 Cork Destination: 7 Jul 1802 Sydney
    Margaret Mary KAVANAGH arrived as a convict from Ireland aboard 'Atlas' on July 6, 1802

    From Cork so it seems to fit.

    Regards,

    Fred

    Hello carolchipp,

    Thank you very much for that. I have access to the Gale Collection through NLA so I'll search later today.

    Regards,

    Fred

    FredW is no longer a member of the forums and is therefore unlikely to see your post.
