So if you’ve got relatives who were sent down (under), you’ll be amazed at what you could discover. Take John ‘Red’ Kelly. An Irishman, Red was sent Tasmania for the crime of stealing two pigs. After serving his time, he settled in Victoria, married and in 1855 had a son named Edward (although you probably know him better as Ned Kelly – Australia’s most infamous bush ranger).
