From Tharston to Australia

The internet and email are wonderful things, abused by some but for many they bring people together for good reasons. It was a contact from a man in Australia that prompted the work outlined below. Phil, from Australia, contacted us about his ancestor who he thought was from Tharston. His 2x great grandfather, a William Hunt, was transported to the colonies in 1853, following several appearances in court for a string of misdemeanours. This contact has led to a joint project to produce a booklet about the life and times of William Hunt.

Below are the versions that are available:
