|I have a William Price sentenced to Transportation aged 16 in 1812 from Middlesex, his sentence was 7 years so he would have been free in 1819 and the right age.
There is also a William Price sentenced to 14 years in 1830, who might be your man, but no age is given, and a further 2 sentenced to 7 years in 1833, again no age given.
One other option is the Army – there appear to be a raft of William Price’s on the various pensioners list. The lists I have access to don’t give age or current location. But there was a constant Army presence in Australia at that time and many soldiers didn’t bother to return to the UK.
There are a number of possible births in the London area too. Does his death certificate give you any clues as to parents names, I know some do?
