Hi Tracey, I sent you a pm on the 28th, I'll resend it
I took me awhile to find the link on the email to reply to the do not reply message I got, and could not figure a way to get back to this question and answer--
But here --it is public information and spread it around.
My GGG Grandfather Charles Chadbon/Chadlion/Chadburn was sentenced to 7 years and transported to VDL arrived "Lord Hungerford" 1821. His son my GG Grandfather WIlliam Chadburn, with the Leslie Brothers, were among the very first settlers of the Darling Downs, Warwick QLD in particular. He was head stud groom on Canning Downs Station from the late 1840's until his death, drowning while crossing a flooded Condamine river on horseback, returning from the Warwick Courthouse after registering the birth of my G Grandfather William Henry Chadburn. My GG Grandmother then remarried - John Robert Howe, their son John Robert Howe jr went on to become the blade shearing world record holder "Jackie Howe" who also made the blue sigglet famous.
