     Convict Bartholomew Reardon was born in 1724 at England. He was a convict
Bartholomew and his wife (Catherine) were charged for having a stolen hair trunk in their possession. Bartholomew pleaded that he did not know it was stolen, and offered to pay the owner for it, which he duly did. However he was still charged with theft and found guilty, his wife was found not guilty.
He was charged at Southport and the case heard at the Castle, Winchester, Hampshire on 15th July 1783. He was then 59 years of age. He was to be transported to America for seven years.
Bartholomew was sent on the ship “Swift” on 12 August 1793 for transportation to America. However when the ship reached the English Channel, there was a Mutiny, and although Bartholomew did not escape, all members onboard were charge and were then to be transported to Africa. The Navy Department decided that the coast of Africa was not suitable for settlement of a penal colony and that Botany Bay, New South Wales would be more suitable. Records from England state the government wanted 740 convicts with a variety of occupations necessary to start a new colony. There was, however very long and detailed planning before they were to leave. Meanwhile convicts were kept on hulks as the prisons were full. The conditions on the hulks were awful and many prisoners died.
During this period Bartholomew was a prisoner on the hulk “Censor” at Woolwich. Convicts were employed each day to work onshore for the government and return to the hulks at night. Bartholomew's name is recorded on the list of the hulk “Censor” from July 1784 to February 1787, when he and several others on the hulk were transferred to the “Scarborough”, one of the ships to be part of the First Fleet to New South Wales.
The “Scarborough” left England on May 1787 and arrived at Port Jackson in January 1788, where a settlement was established.
The new colony was close to starving by the 3rd of June 1790 and many convicts were dead or seriously ill. The first ship of the Second Fleet “Lady Juliana” sailed into Port Jackson with relief supplies and more convicts. (thus Hannah had also arrived in Australia) on 15 July 1783 at The Castle, Winchester, Hampshire, England. He was transported in May 1787 on the convict transport ship 'Scarborough' from England to Port Jackson New South Wales Australia. The Scarborough was three a three masted, 430 ton, transport ship built at Scarborough. It carried 205 male convicts, 30 crew, 44 marines, officers and privates, an official of the staff on its voyage with the First Fleet.

Convict-First Fleet. He arrived January 1788 Port Jackson, New South Wales, Australia, from England. He was transported in 1790 from on the convict transport ship 'HMS Sirius' from New South Wales to Norfolk Island. He married Convict Hannah Rowney in 1791 at Norfolk Island; Ann and Bartholomew were both already married in England, but when they met on Norfolk Island they had began living together shortly after Hannah arrived, and their son, also Bartholomew, was born in June 1791. There was no religious minister on the island to marry or baptise the residents until November 1791. At this time the Rev Johnson, Church of England minister who visited the island and married over 100 couples. Bartholomew and Hannah’s son was baptised on the fist of November 1791. They were 67 and 35 years of age at this time. Although they are were both already married back home in England, prisoners who were transported overseas for some years were encouraged to remarry as there was little chance of them ever returning to England. Bartholomew and Hannah had five children, Paul born on Norfolk island, and two of them were buried there as infants To date no positive record of their daughter Ann’s death can be found, but there are many who think she too came to Van Dieman’s Land and married there too the. Her name is not included in the time Capsule in St David’s Park, Hobart. Convict Bartholomew Reardon died on 1 May 1807 at Norfolk Island. He was buried circa 3 May 1807 at Norfolk Island.
