Isabella Burkett from Bedford gaol

Submitted by Robert James Williams
For her crime, Isabella was transported to Australia on the convict ship Cadet(2). She departed London 9 Sep 1847 and arrived in Hobart 2 Jan 1848. Edward Williams (occupation listed as Labourer and status as a 'free man') applied to marry Isabella in 1853. Once Isabella gained her freedom, the application was granted and they were married in 1854 in St George's Church in Hobart. They had a child named Frank in 1860 in Georgetown of whom I am a direct descendant. I would very much like to find out more about Isabella and/or Edward if at all possible. Please contact me via this website with any information you may have.
