Walford, Barnard (1768–1828)

Bernard Walford had been living in England for seven years when he was sentenced to seven years transportation for stealing a basket of laundry. He arrived in Sydney in 1791 aboard the Active as part of the Third Fleet. In 1796 he was sent to Norfolk Island (presumably with a colonial sentence) on the Reliance. On the expiration of his sentence he was granted a 40 acre parcel of land, of which 20 acres were cultivated. He had a relationship with Jane Mulloy, who already had two children. In 1807 the family was transferred to Van Diemen's Land (Tasmania) and granted land at New Norfolk (Longford). In 1820 he became the licensee of Turk's Head Inn in Hobart Town.
