Daniel EVANS - Convict Number 24229

Ship:  'Pestongee Bomangee'

Departed London on 25 October 1846

Arrived Van Diemen's Land on 13 January 1847

Conduct Record:   CON33/84

Description List:  CON18/48

Indent:  CON14/37


Daniel was convicted at the County Assizes, Staffordshire, England, for 'Robbery in Company with Violence'.  He was transported for 15 years, and his native place is listed as Southsea.  Southsea is a suburb of Portsmouth in Hampshire.  He was listed as a Tinman.  Daniel was one of 12 children, his siblings being:  Thomas, Hugh, David, Evan, John, Reece, Christopher, Mary, Eliza, Mary Ann and Alice.  His mother's name was Lydia.  There is no mention of his father on his convict papers, so I am assuming that his father was deceased at the time of his conviction.


In the 1849 Muster Returns for NSW and Tasmania, Daniel is listed as being hired by L Gregson at Restdown.


On the 27 February 1854, in Hobart, Daniel married Phillis LANGLEY nee SKINNER. They had one daughter, Jane Evans, born on the 28 December 1851.  Jane was born some three years before Phillis and Daniel married.  Phillis and Daniel could not marry when they first applied as David Langley, Phillis's first husband had disappeared and they had to wait seven years before they could marry. 


Daniel died on the 9 August 1859 at Hobart.  His death certificate states his age as 57 years, Trade as Tinsmith, birthplace as Wales, and the cause of death as 'Chronic Disease of the Kidneys'.  The death was registered on the 10 August 1859 by Phillis EVEANS [sic], wife, of Bathurst Street, Hobart.
