Material in Australia
- The new settlers and convict list reveals that Robert Turpin was "disposed of to W. H. Williams of Sydney"
- NSW Convict Indents reveal that Robert Turpin was a stable boy, able to read and write, single and a protestant. Born in London and was convicted of stealing lace.
There are so many more questions and searching to undertake and I wonder what happened to Robert.
