    Default COOKE - Brickwall

    My gr gr grandfather is Benjamin COOKE born 1815 Dublin, Ireland.
    Native Place: Dublin
    Trial: 1834
    Trade or calling: tobacco spinner
    Ship: "Royal Admiral"
    Arrival Date: 22 Jan 1835
    Place Arrived: NSW Australia
    Crime: picking pockets
    Sentence: 7 years
    Former Convictions: 3 months
    Age: 20

    I am lead to believe the records prior to this were destroyed in a fire.

    Any leads greatly appreciated as this is my direct line, we can't go back any further and have been stuck here for years.

    Kind Regards,

    Hi Wayne,

    The transportation records are held by the National Archives, no fire.
