Riches, David and Mary Ann
I'm looking for information on David RICHES. He was convicted in Norwich in 1829 and transported to Australia. His family believed he was from Norfolk, but not necessarily Norwich. Records at the time of his conviction say he was 22/23 at the time, which makes his year of birth 1806 or 1807. Some family records suggest he may have been born a bit earlier than 1806. His convict records describe him as having a tattoo of a heart with "Mary Ann Riches" and also that he was married with one child. In Australia he married Mary Ann DANN. It is unclear if she is the same Mary Ann or if she was also from Norfolk.

Betts family
Has anyone any info: on Sarah Betts, who married Robert Shaw 02.06.1821 in Norwich Norfolk, they had a son William Betts Shaw, 22.011.1822. Then she seems to have vanished, can't find a death for her, or did she re marry, as Robert Shaw did, in 1838 to a Caroline White, in Marylebone, Middlesex, and William Betts Shaw was with them in the 1841/51 census I cannot find a birth for her either, could be around 1795-1800? I think. Was she from Norfolk, and of Boat people.

Thomas Dawson - Burnham Overy
I'm trying to find the parents of Thomas Dawson, born about 1817, Labourer. i believe in Brnham Overy, Norfolk. In 1851 he married Mary Ann Berry at Burnham Overy Church.

Mary Ann Berry's parents are Richard Berry and Elizabeth Aggus from Thornham Magna, Suffolk. Thomas may have died between 1851 and 1861 as Mary Ann is a widow on the 1861 census. She then went on to marry Charles Gay. Any help in finding his parents, baptism or any brothers and sisters would be a great help. Thanks Maxine
