1914RE: Young Family
- Oct 31, 2013
Does anybody know if St Helena has police records available? Apart from being a stop over point, was St Helena a party to convict transportation to the colonies of Tasmania, New South Wales and Queensland?
My ancestor John Francis Young b 1835 seems to have vanished from St Helena as a young person and popped up as a man in his late thirties in the Australian Goldfields of Victoria. We have exhausted all standard avenues like passenger lists etc. I have even looked at convict registers. He may have been a stowaway or a steerage passenger?
Any clues as to where I should now look?

It is possible one of these is related to the Youngs. Also the YON is close to the Youd. I have found many instances of spelling changes in old records.There are other years listed in Google. I have a copy of this page, 361 and can scan & share it if there is a problem getting to see it directly.Ed of Falcon
