Richard Trindall (Trinder / Trindle)

Elizabeth was not the only "Trindle" who was transported to Australia.   On 25 Aug 1815 Richard Trindall (this is the spelling that descendants use) was transported having been convicted at Oxford, Banbury Session of Peace on 23 April 1814.  Richard, a rope and twine maker, was 21 years old.  He arrived on the Fanny in January of 1816. 

State Records of New South Wales - Colonial Secretaries Index 1788-1825
OldMill65 shared the information on Ancestry that Richard Trinder was pardoned in 1823.

Richard Trindall (Trinder/Trindle) born about 1794 in Eynsham, Oxfordshire, England was the son of Richard and Sarah.  He supposedly married Mary Ann Adams (1809–1906) about 1828, however on source claims a wife Charlotte.  They lived in Maitland City, New South Wales, Australia and had at least ten children.  Different resources give different names and dates, so make sure you have documentation to prove any links to this family.
