  • Notes 
    • Edward Warren was a Parkhurst boy sent to Western Australia in 1846.
      Parkhurst boys pre-dated the arrival of convicts in Western Australia and were juveniles who were sentenced to transportation. Western Australia accepted Parkhurst boys between 1842 and 1849 to boost the labour force in the new colony of Swan River.
      Edward appeared in the 1841 Census with Phillip Warren, Arthur Warren and Ann Warren it is unclear how they are related, they were residing in Thundbridge, Hertfordshire. Philip was 65 at the time of the Census and maybe he was Edward’s Grandfather. Philip was a widower when he married Mary Hart on 9th December 1810 at St Mary the Virgin in Ware, Hertfordshire and doesn’t appear in the 1841 census.
      Edward Warren was convicted at the Hertford Sessions on the 29th November 1841 at the age of 13 for housebreaking and was sentenced to 10 years transportation along with another lad of the same age named Robert Hart. I wasn’t Edward’s first brush with the law as he was before the previous quarter session admitted as evidence against a man named James Scales who was charged and convicted for receiving stolen fowls. Edward and another lad were asked by Scales to steal the fowls for him.
      Edward was transferred to Parkhurst from Hertford Gaol on 10th February 1842 to await transportation. His character was described as “Bad, artful and deceitful”
      The “Cumberland left the Isle of Wight on 30th September 1845 and arrived in Fremantle on 26th January 1846. On arrival Edward was indentured for 4 years, firstly as a domestic servant for Lt Col Andrew Clarke, 1846 – 1847. Then as a farm servant for William Locke Brockman in Upper Swan 1847 – 1850. Brockman gave good reports on Edward’s conduct.
      Edward was successful in his new life in Western Australia becoming a farmer, marrying Ellen Dewar and raising a large family.
