AudlemOnline has received this plea for information from Judith Fisher. She would be delighted to receive any information at

I am a descendant of Thomas Hassall of Audlem, who was transported for murder in 1831.

Our family connection to Thomas is very strong. He is remembered often, and his story retold.

I would be very interested to contact any relatives in the area or the lady that did the research in your village.

A copy of the original 1830 newspaper report of the murder can be seen on the Audlem Archive site here

Our picture shows the Hunter Valley in Australia where Thomas apparently lived to a ripe old age after his original death sentence was commuted to transportation
