here some insight into the Thews..Im hoping to pick up a bit of a decent lineage as I am a graphic designer and although my immediate family arent very well educated I know that somewhere somehow there must be more and hopefully a creative in the family. Did you see Kate Cerebrano on tv last night? It was cool she follwoed her family right back to the early 1800s to discover she had a GGGG grandfather who was a talented portrait painter and a music teacher. What a jackpot. Id love to find a bit of substance on my side!
The following is from a man called Bruce Johnston who replied to me earlier.
Hannah Thew, convicted in the Old Bailey on 14 Sep 1803 for larceny of a
gown, valued 10 shillings, at Newgate St London, and 2 silver spoons valued
15 shillings in Bishopsgate, aged 35 years. Sentenced to 7 years
transportation to NSW in 1804 on "Experiment". Died 1808.
Anne Thew, convicted of theft of clothing in Bullandmouth St, London, on 9
April 1829, aged 15 years. Sentenced to transportation for 7 years to NSW.
Arrived 1829 on "Lucy Davidson". Married Thomas Light 1831. He was also a
convict sentenced on 25 May 1819 when aged 30 years to 7 years
transportation for stealing a case of drawing instruments.
Thomas Thew, convicted to 7 years transportation on 20 Feb 1834 when aged 23
years for stealing a watch in St James valued 3 pounds on 13 Nov 1833 and a
musical snuff box on 16 Nov 1833.
Joseph Thew, a free settler arrived 1823 on "Andromeda". Settled in the
Newcastle area. Mentioned in Colonial Secretary's papers. NSW BDM have a
Joseph C Thew dying 1876 with father as John and mother Caroline. No
These also may have no connection to your family directly but may be
indirect somehow. Don't worry about having a convict or two as an ancestor.
These days it's nearly a badge of honour. Also, they a little easier to
trace than the "honest" forebears.
I also forgot to mention that the Thews were centred (and still are) around
the Newcastle area of England.
