Convicted on 12 April 1820 and sentenced to 7 years’ transportation, but not transported until 1823 on the Albion.

A great deal of further infractions whilst a convict, including highway robbery and violent assault.

Eventually hanged in Hobart on Monday 30 April 1832, for burglary of the home of Laughlin Reynolds.  Physical description records are missing, although Hobart Town Courier report on the hangings gave his age as 26.
