Ottiwell Ingle (?–?)

Ottiwell Ingle/Hindle, a weaver, was found guilty on 6 October 1785 at the Preston Quarter Session, Lancaster, of stealing a silver watch. Sentenced to 7 years transportation he was sent to the Ceres hulk before embarking on the Alexander for New South Wales in January 1787; arriving a year later as part of the First Fleet.

Ingle (as Josph Ingle) married Mary Piles on 14 September 1788 at Port Jackson. The couple were sent — with Mary's son from John Chew — to Norfolk Island on the Sirius in March 1790. On 25 January 1791 Ingle received 25 lashes for a misdeamour. By July the family was subsisting on a Phillipsburg lot. They returned to Port Jackson on the Atlantic in September 1792. There is no further trace of Ingle in the records. It is possible he returned to England.
