Convicts from Devon and Cornwall

Gary Price is setting up a small prison museum in Exeter U.K. (The prison there dates back to 1790)
He has access to numerous prison records for the area dating back to the 1820's which include entries for prisoners transported to VDL.
Gary is willing to research any enquiry in exchange for information on what happened to the prisoners after landing in Tasmania. The information will be used as part of the Museum's opening exhibition.
Names of some prisoners are listed below.
