I did E-mail you but it came back to me again. The following is a copy of the E-mail.
saw your message on the Rootsweb Notice Board. I too am interested in Solomon Wiseman, not that I am related, just trying to establish a link. He is an interesting person, and there is a well known land mark here in Australia bearing his name, 'Wiseman's Ferry'. If you go to the Rootsweb Notice Board for the Wiseman name, you will find a message there that I posted, regarding Solomon.
There is plenty of information here in Australia on Solomon, right from the time when he arrived here as a convict. The hard part, is to trace his details prior to coming to Australia.
My line of Wisemans come from Essex and I am back to 1768, William Wiseman. Below is a brief outline of my tree, also some information on Solomon. And at the very end is my URL.
Would love to hear from you, if you find any tie-ins.

Main clues are:-
Date of Birth Apr 16, 1777.
Solomon was tried at the Old Bailey on October 30, 1805. He was found guilty and sentenced to death. Evidently the sentence was commuted to transportation.
He arrived in Australia on board the convict ship â€˜Alexanderâ€™ on August 20, 1806. With him were his wife Jane Wiseman (maiden name was Middleton), one daughter and two sons. It is possible that his parents were Richard and Mary and he came from either Essex or Kent. An account of his trial appears in the Old Bailey Sessions Papers, 1804-1805. And finally, he was of the same vintage as William Wiseman.
