National Archives. Reference: ADM 101/71/3 . Medical and surgical journal of His Majesty’s convict ship Thames for 17 June to 23 November 1829 by Thomas Bell, surgeon and superintendent, during which time the said ship was employed on a voyage to Van Dieman’s Land.
Folios 13-15: Charles Hoare, aged 17, convict; case number 8; disease or hurt, dysentary. Previously had been three months in the hospital hulk at Portsmouth before embarkation. Put on sick list, 27 October 1829 at sea. Died 4 November 1829.
Folios 22-24: Surgeon’s general remarks.
… The two prisoners who died on the voyage, ...Charles Hoare aged 17 was of a very delicate habit of body having been in the hospital of the hulks three months previous to embarking. The slightest change of weather produced in him an attack of diarrhoea. He like wise suffered dreadfully from seasickness. On the 29th October he complained of being attacked with frequent pinging and griping and severe pain over the abdomen, sickness of stomach great thirst, tongue coated, a clammy moisture on the skin. From his indolent habits and sullen disposition I was frequently necessitated to force the medicine down. He also complained of pain in the right side, to which were applied 24 leeches to the part affected.
