Henry was tried at York, England 6 March 1841 and given a 15 yr Transportation sentence to van Dieman’s Land (Tasmania) for Burglary. He travelled on the ‘David Clarke’. He was Protestant and could read.  He was assigned to various work gangs but was in trouble to idleness and failing to do duty which resulted in him being put in irons and solitary confinement.  He died at Impression Bay 23 Nov 1855.
