Issac William Cave was convicted for stealing a letter containing five pounds from his employer - he was an educated man and worked as a secretary. He received a conditional pardon in 1847, and thereafter disappears. His parents were Rebecca Booz and Abraham John Cave, and he was born in Portsmouth on 16 June 1820.
He thereafter appears to have gone under the name of Alfred George Cave (same parents, same birth date), and married Matilda Amos under that name in 1850, later dying in Christchurch, New Zealand in 1885.

If they are the one and same, Mr Cave did not disappear, according to family history he was a tutor to the Amos family before the marriage.
