In England he was convicted of stealing 8 bushels of barley worth ten shillings but not guilty of stealing the hempen sacks it was in.
Francis left a wife Sarah and eight children in England and after serving his sentence he bigamously married Mary Moore and fathered a further eleven children ( 19 in all !)
By 1822 he was a government servant to Mr Price in Parramatta and in 1825 given a ticket to leave.
