Finding Thomas Dames by Lynne Morley
“Finding Thomas Dames” is the true story of an ancestor, who as a child had turned to a life of petty crime to survive the grim streets of inner Nottingham. He was caught by the law many times and called an “Incorrigible Rogue” and “A vagabond.” He was sentenced to be transported – Twice! Eventually he was sent to Western Australia on a convict ship The Lincelles. I could never have imagined the incredible story that would unfurl itself as I unlocked the secrets of his new life Down Under……… and a life so tragic that you could not have made it up!
