Philip committed a number of petty crimes before finally being condemned to death, commuted to transportation for life. He was originally assigned to Sir John Jamison but after serving time on Chain Gang for stealing fruit was reassigned to Thomas Jones, a freed convict, who had a land grant at Wilberforce, NSW. He received a Ticket of Leave 1848 which specifically prohibited his return to the UK. He was later granted land at Bathurst.
