Joseph PIKE

PIKE Joseph Looking for Joseph Pike's Mum and Dad We're looking for any documentary or living links to the ancestors/parents and/or siblings of our Great Grandfather, Joseph Pike, nearly certainly born in Malmesbury (but possibly Manchester) in 1810. He was later sentenced to death for a non-violent housebreaking in Gloucester, a sentence subsequently commuted to transportation for 14 years to the Sydney colony, Australia. But Joseph never came back and became a very successful business and pioneering historical figure in the Illawarra region of New South Wales. Please email us - - if you have any information at all that may help us reveal Joseph's ancestors and/or any siblings. Graham and Geoff Pike, Australia
