I am a proud 6th generation Aussie with 9 convicts in my family tree. Following is the interwoven tale of two of these men one a Convict Joseph Tuzo of First Fleet 1788 'Scarborough' & a Soldier Joseph Baylis of 2nd Fleet 1790 'Surprise'. Both spent time on Norfolk Island and both married convict women. Their children Johanna Golsby Tuzo & Benjamin Baylis both born in 1818 met and married in 1837 and the rest they say is History.
