31/7/1824 Public Ledger and Daily Advertiser London, England:
At Lynn Quarter Sessions, Anthony Blackster was sentenced to be transported for seven years for maliciously destroying two vines in the hot-house, and several shrubs in the garden, of Edward Elsden, Esq. of that place, on the night of Wednesday the 7th inst.
The vines had been trained with the utmost care, and were loaded with the choicest fruit ; but the prisoner had broken and destroyed them so effectually as to prevent the possibility of their ever being restored.
1837: Living at Northwood, near Goulburn.
