He was a File Cutter, convicted at the age of 25 on 17th Oct 1833, along with 3 other younger men (for stealing linen) and all sentenced to 7 years transportation.  The trial took place at Northampton Assizes (Michaelmass Quarter Sessions) and he was recorded as being from Northamptonshire. At some point they were all removed from the Northampton County Gaol to the convict hulk York.
He arrived in NSW on 18th Nov 1834 and was assigned to Charles Throsby of Throsby Park, near Bowral (see link below) and given his Certificate of Freedom in Illawarra District in 1841.  The house at Throsby Park was built from 1834, so he was probably part of that.
