Possible family of William Yarwood, Australian convict. (1793)

+5 votes
Hi, I'm trying to find the family (mainly parents or siblings) of William Yarwood (http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Yarwood-84) who was born 1793 in Cheshire, England. He is listed as a convict from Cheshire to Australia alongside possibly a brother or cousin, Thomas Yarwood (http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Yarwood-73) on the Indefatigable in 1815 (http://www.convictrecords.com.au/ships/indefatigable/1814).

I've discovered that Thomas Yarwood listed above, has a brother by the name of William Yarwood (http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Yarwood-131) also born in Cheshire, England, but in 1794. I have no proof they're the same person but I think it's quite possible. If anyone could help me find William Yarwood's family I'd be very thankful.

Try this website.There seems  to be some discussion about Thomas and William Yarwood from the Indefatigable. Hope this helps.



William and Thomas were thought to use Woods as a surname as well.

I have seen that discussion a few times when researching Thomas and William, but unfortunately it seems to only really discuss Thomas' family. Thank you, I'll just have to keep looking!
