Hello all - I am looking for any information about my g-g-g-grandmother Rebecca Cassells, from Glasgow in Scotland. Her father was Charles Cassells and her mother unknown. She had one brother that I have so far found - John William.
Rebecca was transported to Tasmania for stealing a pair of boots in 1850. There she married John Farrell, also a convict. Together they had Mary, John, Elizabeth, William James, Thomas, Charles and Bathaoley from 1852 to 1868. In the early 1860's the family name was changed from Farrell to Carley, and all their descendants are known by that name today.
Mary married John Schultz, John married Martha Nicholls, Elizabeth died as an infant, William married Ann Williams, Thomas married Amelia Edwards, Charles I have no records of besides his birth and Bathaoley died at 16. I can provide more details to interested parties.

Thanks for any responses
