Carol, thank you for all that. It gives me more for the Maltbys.
Regarding William Price. I have a lot of information on various members of the family from a relative who said she had a researcher do some of it for her.
From this , it seems that William was a lot older than Lettice.
The dates show he may have been born c. 1797 and arrived in Australia around 1837. He may well have been a convict and gained his freedom before meeting Lettice. Seeing that link you gave with a prison at Mt Pleasant, it seems possible.
On the dates given , he would have been 50 at marriage . It seems he fathered 12 children and would have been around 70 when the last child was born.
William died in 1881 of old age.
I have copies of various newspaper reports on the family from later years but dates are vague.
In the info from my relative, it seems there was an older child Frances ( Fanny) who would have been 19 at time of the 1841 census. she may have been already married or living elsewhere. She was not listed on the ship with family. I also have a Mary Ann b 1824. She was on the ship with the family but at census time may have been living elsewhere too .
Thank you again. It's a slow process but one hopes to get somewhere in the end. I just wish my ancestors had more unusual names . It would be easier to find them.
