Talk: Crime In 18th-Century England
John T Smith will present a review of crime in England in the 18th century and the transporting of over 60,000 offenders to lands beyond the seas – and before they were sent to Australia. Botany Bay, Van Diemen’s Land and New South Wales all came later, and we know about their history, but most people haven’t much idea of where we exported our Buckinghamshire felons before 1787. Come and find out!

Saturday 20th January 2017, 2pm. Buckinghamshire Family History Society, Turnfurlong Junior School, Turnfurlong Lane, Aylesbury HP21 7PLF
