Owen Jones disappeared after Transportation to Australia

I have been trying to locate some evidence of what happened to my 3rd Great-grandfather Owen Jones, after he was transported to Australia in 1842. It was a ten year criminal sentence for stealing a watch. Sentence details: Convicted at Merioneth, Bala Quarter Sessions for a term of 10 years on 01 July 1842. Vessel: Duchess of Northumberland. Date of Departure: 01 October 1842. Place of Arrival: Van Diemen's Land.

Who were Melville Sorrell's Parents?

I have not been able to confirm who Melville Sorrell's parents are. Because of several matches on DNA a good guess seems to be James Sorrell & wife Mary MacDonald.
