“Benjamin Cromer (alias Crammer) was sentenced to seven years transportation on 24 March 1788 Warwickshire Assizes held at Coventry for the theft of ducks and fowls belonging to Mr Henry Truelove of Dunchurch. A month later he was ordered to the Thames hulk Justitia, age given as 38. On 12 November 1789 he was embarked on the Neptune transport.
Among the many sick and dying convicts landed at Sydney Cove, he was buried on 6 July 1790, hardly a week after arrival.”
