Samuel was convicted at Chelmsford for stealing a sow and three piglets to the value of £3.  Would love to find out what happened to him after his release in 1833, whether he made it back to England.  Also, would like to know who his brothers were, I think they are John and William but cannot find definate proof of where he was born in Essex.
