Information submitted by Caroline Juffs

William Juffs was the older brother of my great, great, great grandfather James juffs. William and his father (also William) were both sentenced to transportation to Australia for poaching/burglary. I don't know whether the father made it or if he died in the hulk awaiting transportation, his family had to seek refuge in the local workhouse in Houghton Conquest.

William was also the brother of my great,great,great grandfather Richard & after his transportation he received a ticket of leave on 18th March 1845 but I don't know what became of him after that. The other William that Rosie mentions was born in Flitwick in 1810 & he married Maria Smith. He was also transported & finished up in Tasmania but again I don't know what became of him.
