Joseph Worster – Convict – Link to the GWT?
Joseph Worster – Convict – Link to the GWT?
Joseph Worster was convicted of larceny at the Old Bailey on 30th January 1837, the offence being committed in Poplar in London: Details
He was sentenced to transportation for seven years. His age at the time suggests he was fifteen and hence born in 1822, and this accords with most of the available data. However, a physical description of him suggests he was nineteen, which would put his DOB at 1818. He was kept on the prison hulk York at Gosport in Hampshire until 24th July when he was transferred to the Euryalus at Chatham.
On 24th August he was transferred to the Royal Sovereign for transportation. This ship sailed from Sheerness on 31st August and arrived in Van Diemen’s Land (Tasmania) on 9th January 1838. Details
Upon arrival, in his physical description (found at Tasmanian Names Index), it not only gives his age as 19, which would mean his DOB was around 1818, but it also gives his birthplace as High Wycombe which would very likely place him on the GWT. On the Bucks Baptisms the only Joseph of the right age is a Joseph Wooster baptised at All Saints in High Wycombe on 22 May 1820, parents Edward and Martha Wooster, Labourer. Edward and Martha are not currently on the GWT.
In 1838 Joseph was sentenced to a "road party" for three months after being suspected of theft from his master’s house: Newspaper Article
Joseph got his "ticket of leave" on 24th August 1842: Newspaper Article

It is suspected that Joseph moved to South Australia after this and was freed on 30th January 1844, exactly seven years after his conviction.
There are two possible further references to Joseph, although both have doubt attached to them. In 1850 he was cited as a creditor in a bankruptcy case, being owed £39: Newpaper Article and in 1952 he was fined £10 for supplying liquor to a native:

The S. A. Government Gazette, July 15, 1852, pp. 424-426.
Port Lincoln
13. March 25th, Joseph Worster, overseer, was brought up charged with giving spirituous liquor to Murpalta, an aboriginal native. He was fined ten pounds, and this extreme penalty was inflicted in consequence of his being an old and determined offender on the same score. My report of January, 1849, and the Record of the Court show as much; he continued the practice since that period, and in cases where natives only are witnesses, he possessed facilities for evading the law.

Melancholy Accident
Melancholy Accident
SOUTH BUCKS FREE PRESS
SATURDAY OCTOBER 1st 1859
PENN:
MELANCHOLY ACCIDENT
On Saturday last a most distressing accident occurred in this village to Mr JOHN WOOSTER - baker.
It appears that Mr Wooster's horse was a vicious tempered animal and was in the habit of kicking, so much so, as to require to have forefoot strapped up before it could be safely approached. On Saturday morning, Mr Wooster being somewhat pressed for time, ventured to harness the horse without adopting the usual precaution, and when put on the crupper, it kicked out in a most vicious manner and laid Mr Wooster prostrate. The injury received was so serious that he died the same evening. On Monday an inquest, before F Chansley Esq., Coroner, when those facts being given in evidence the jury returned a verdict of accidental death.
We understand the horse has been shot, and that a subscrip¬tion has been set on foot, that, the widow who is left with four children, shall not be a loser from the loss of the animal. We doubt not that the appeal will be liberally responded to.

He gives his age as 19 on the ship's passenger list, his occupation as farming and his address as a vicarage in Melton, presumably Melton Mowbray in Leicestershire.
His parents were very active in the church in Leicestershire, so could this be their son?

The above is a recent photograph two veterans of the Maori war, viz. Mr. G. H. Robinson, of South Head. Sydney (left) and Mr. Charles Wooster, of Nabiac (right). The former is 86 years of age and the latter 90 years. They enlisted in the Sydney contingent in 1862 and fought through the whole of the campaign. It is believed that they are the only survivors of the second Waikato regiment. Mr. Wooster was a prisoner of war under Te Coote and was taken to the head of the Wipa River, just above Peronga. In spite of his 90 years Mr. Wooster is in good health and retains all his faculties.
