  • Notes 
    • Hi Sandy. Stephen Norman II, the son of Stephen Norman and Elizabeth Gibbs, moved to Nottingham with his family in the 1820's. In 1827, using the alias "William Gibbs", he was convicted for stealing sheep and sentenced to life transportation to Tasmania, Australia. His wife and children joined him in Tasmania, where the name Gibbs was retained by all except his 2nd son, also Stephen who reverted to using Norman. His eldest son, William Norman Gibbs, was my Great Great Grandfather. The convict story was covered up by the family with a series of half truths and myths, and it was only a story that I remembered being told as a child that allowed me to unravel the truth. I have obtained several documents, including convict records, newspaper articles and letters that provide proof. I will endeavor to add these to my tree. I have had a brief look at your web site and I am now looking forward to studying it more. Regards, Jenny Williams Jan 09, 2017
