Stockdale & Bayliss Pedigree Chart. There are 11 convicts on this chart including 3 First Fleeters, 1 Red Coat, 2nd Fleet, Free settlers & English gentry. It would seem convict families married other convict descendants. This isn`t all our convict ancestors, which just happen to be on my mother`s Stockdale side of the family tree, maybe because her ancestors arrived with the First Fleet in the New Colony of NSW?
