I am trying to find family/details of my great,great grandfather JOSEPH BROOKS born about 1817. He was Transported to Norfolk Island on the ship "John Cain" in 1846, after his Court Case at the Worcester Assizes on 10 March 1846, where he was convicted of Rape ?? of a young woman he had been with before in a "House of Ill Fame" (Brothel). In June 1847 he was moved to Hobart Town, Tasmania, Australia, where in 1854 he married Matilda Morley who was the daughter of Free Settlers to Hobart - James and Martha (Dalton) Morley.
On his Court Papers Joseph gave his native place as Hereford. I have been unable to trace his family - Can anybody help me ???
