Hawkesbury on the Net

Many of my convicts and their families lived in the Hawkesbury Valley, particularly in or near, Windsor, Richmond and Cornwallis. Hawkesbury on the Net is therefore a good starting place for family history resources relating to that region.

Volunteers have been transcribing memorials in cemeteries, church registers and other lists relating to the area. This is a work in progress but is well worth a look if your family came from the Hawkesbury Valley.

The Cemetery Register is particularly useful as it not only confirms that a person was buried in a particular cemetery but will often provide the location of the grave. The Hawkesbury Pioneers Monument contains the names of three of my convicts, Uriah Moses, John Pendergast and William Roberts. War memorials, with names, are also listed.

The Claim a Convict website now operates from Hawkesbury on the Net.
