Henry Ponchard - Ponchard wed Betty Riley in 1847 at Church of England St James, Melbourne
Henry Panchard appeared in the Bristol Quarter Sessions Court on the 5th of January, 1835, on a charge of Larceny. Sentenced to 7 years transportation and arrived in the Colony on the 17th of January, 1836 aboard the Convict Transport "John Barry (3)" .
Once in the colony of New South Wales, it appears that Henry was assigned to the employ of James McArthur (Jr.), the son of Hannibal McArthur. Permission was sought, and given, in 1840 for James McArthur to bring four convict servants with him to the new colony of Port Phillip. Henry Ponchard was listed by name as one of these. In early 1840, James McArthur accompanied Count Strzelecki on his exploration of Gippsland on which he scaled and named Mt. Kosciusko.

Henry Ponchard applied for his Certificate of Freedom at the expiration of his 7 year sentence and it was granted and issued to him on the 4th of May, 1842. He would have had to carry this document with him and produce it on demand to prove that he had completed his sentence and was no longer an attached convict, but a free man. Henry was married at St. James Church of England, Melbourne, on the 7th of December, 1847. His bride was an Irish girl named Elizabeth (Betsey) Reilly who would have been about 23 years old at this time. They had 9 children - dates are not all registered.
