Two books on Welsh convicts


Sentenced to Hell: The Story of Men and Women Transported from North Wales, 1730-1878
J. Richard Williams
Published by Gwasg Carreg Gwalch (2011)
ISBN: 9781845241759
Between 1730 and 1878 men and women from Anglesey, Caernarfon, Merioneth, Denbigh and Flint were sentenced to be transported from their native land to Australia or America. How did they get there? How old were they? What had they done to deserve their fate?

O Fôn i Van Diemen's Land [From Anglesey to Van Diemen's Land]
J. Richard Williams
Published in Welsh by Gwasg Carreg Gwalch (2007)
ISBN: 1845271289, 9781845271282
This book tells the story of Anne Williams of Anglesey, who was transported to Van Diemen's Land in 1842 for ten years and who spent the rest of her life in Tasmania bringing up her family--who still live in the same area today.

J. Richard Williams is a retired headmaster who lives at Anglesey. His main interests are convicts on the 'Garland Grove' which sailed from Woolwich, London in October 1842, and arrived in Van Diemen's Land in January 1843, and anyone transported from Anglesey, Caernarvonshire, Merionethshire, Denbighshire or Flintshire. He can be contacted directly on gwernyfed@tiscali.co.uk
