8/5/1820 Bristol Mercury Bristol, England:
Henry Fry, for stealing wearing-apparel, &c.; the property of Edmund Clift & Co.

Henry Fry was listed as being 15 years old on arrival - his native place was Bristol.

Henry was 4’9½” tall, brown hair and eyes.

26/2/1825: Henry Fry was executed for burglary at the Surveyor General’s office.

4/3/1825 Hobart Town Gazette:
On Saturday last four men, named Samuel Thomas Fielding and James Chamberlain, for sheep-stealing, and Stephen Lear and Henry
Fry, for burglary, expiated their offences on the scaffold within the walls of Hobart Town Gaol.—Let us hope that their shameful end
will operate with advantage as a caution to their criminal survivors: for transgressions have become so numerous that the law must
in future take its rigid course.
