    Notes 
    • From http://members.iinet.net.au/~perthdps/convicts/census.html

      Joseph WINDLE was convicted with brother Alfred.Stealing 48 rolls of ribbon.Sentence 7 years.

      Received certificate of freedom in 1829 and then probably went back to England.

    • From Marge Kelly:

      After he had served his sentence, Alfred stayed in Sydney and acquired considerable property holdings in Coogee. He may have hoped for these assets to stay in the family, but his drunken son (Alfred II), gambled them all away.

    • From Mike Kelly 28/1/2008:

      I don't think Joseph and Alfred were brothers as stated above. More like 2nd cousins I think. There is something here about Alfred ---> http://investigator.records.nsw.gov.au/Entity.aspx?Path=\Item\296599
      From Mike Kelly 24/1/2010:
      Alfred was convicted on 4th August 1821 and was transported on 4th April 1822 according to ancentry.com.au

    • From Dan Byrnes:

      Alfred married Rooke Caroline Mary Ann-53044 daughter of Cabinetmaker Rooke James-338326 and wife1 RNotknown Elizabeth-338327 in 1835 in St Phillips,Sydney. Caroline was born on 29 Nov 1817 in London. She was christened in 1818 in St Luke's, OLd St, Finsbury. She died in 1884 in Sydney. She was buried in Sydney.

      She is dr1. Larkin notes that there may be two different women as Mary Anne seems to have changed her name to Caroline by 1840 and in 1841 listed her names as Mary AC and thereafter is listed only as Caroline, and death-listed as Caroline. Are there two different women? Larkin has her born circa 1802 in England. The ship "Guildford" arrived 1821, so she was presumably born in England. Noted as married in 1835, CofE, St Phillips, Sydney in Larkin's tree.
