      Lent Assizes 1802 Stafford
      No. 70 Hannah Hill age 19 Committed Feb 17 by Rev. W Maden; received 20 March 1802
      Charged with on suspicion of privately stealing 21 yards of printed calico from the shop of Richard Friggleton a draper of Wolverhampton.
      Found Guilty of Stealing (Not Privately) To be transported for seven years.
      Behavior was orderly
      Discharged: See No. 296 Convict Register

      N.B. Piggot's 1818 Directory lists a William Fregleton Linen and Wollen Draper at 17, High Street, Wolverhampton
      ********************************************************************** *****************
      Hannah was transported for 7 years arriving in Austalia on the Experiment on 26 April 1804
      ********************************************************************** ********************
      There are a number of sites on the internet incorrectly claiming that Hannah was the daughter of William Asbury and Sarah Stretton born 30 August 1772 in Longdon by Lichfield Staffordshire.
      This does not tie in with her correct age (19 in 1802) but possible if we take the age quoted on death/ Burial.
      Also the marriage entry at Wolverhampton to Elisha Hill is Hannah Eastbury. I have never seen Asbury, a common name in the Wolverhampton area, written in the Registers as Eastbury. Hannah was illiterate as was Elisha and the Witness Charlotte Bishton. The clerk, William Meready also a witness, almost certainly filled in the register and he was a local of long standing.
      Hannah was more likely an Essley from Wednesfield, the registers are currently being examined.
