  • Notes 
    • Daniel, like his father, was a London chimney sweep; in the colony af NSW he was a farme

      With his friend Samuel French, the First Middlesex Jury tried Daniel Judd before Mr. Justice Lawrence at the Old Bailey on the 10th of January 1798. They were charged with stealing 20lbs (about 9kg) of bacon valued at 7 shillings (70 cents). Daniel was twenty years (?) old when convicted and sentenced to transportation to the Colony of New South Wales for seven years.

      Daniel sailed on the 'Perseus' from Spithead, England on Tuesday the 12th of February 1802 via Rio de Janeiro and the Cape of Good Hope arriving at Port Jackson, New South Wales, on Wednesday the 4th of August 1802.

      On Monday the 28th of September 1812, Daniel at the age of thirty-four married sixteen years old currency lass Elizabeth Douglas at St Matthew's Church of England, Windsor, NSW. John and Isabelle Luddifs and Matthew Hughes a schoolteacher witnessed the marriage. Daniel and Elizabeth were illiterate and signed with an X.

      Elizabeth joined Daniel on his land near Pitt Town where they started their family and worked clearing and improving their farm. They were hard, tough times, but it was expected. In 1818 Daniel received a 55-acre land grant on Castle Hill Road. In 1822 the General Muster records Daniel as living at Windsor (Pitt Town) with his wife and children then born.

      Twenty one years after arriving in New South Wales, on the 16 of December 1823, Daniel Judd was granted his 'Certificate of Freedom 054/1693'. He was sentenced to transportation in 1897, twenty-six years earlier. Daniel's pardon is still in Newcastle, untouched. All Daniel's life he believed he was innocent of the crime for which he was convicted.
