    History & Achievements :
    BTW, there is a village halfway between Manchester and Warrington named Partington, and I believe the surname is quite common around there. However, I've been told that the redcoat James Partington was born in Gloucestershire, and his birth date is supposedly closer to 1824. According to a site I saw the other day, his father was Robert Partington, and his mother Frances. BTW2, from what I can find, he was the only soldier ancestor of mine, although I have 5 convicts in total on both sides of the family. BTW3, his son (also James Partington) married Charlotte Warburton Pearce in 1868. Charlotte was descended from the Hepburn's, who claim Rob Roy Macgregor as an ancestor  

     We believe that James was born around 1826 in England and came to Australia as a convict guard aboard the Egyptian in 1843. He was sent to Van Dieman's Land as a convict guard and stationed at Brighton west of Hobart. He married in Mary Ann Crosswell in 1848 and she had a son in 1849 my g grandfather also James Partington. Tragically Mary Ann herself the daughter of a convict appears to have died in child birth and the child was brought up by Mrs Sharpe in Pontville. James Partington (the father) seems to have disappeared after the death of his wife - no further records of him have been found. His son James went on to have 9 children of whom the youngest Preston Pearce was my grandfather. His brothers were outstanding musicians and won many band competitions.
