James was clearly a seaman and this makes it clear how he had left the colony initially and returned to England.
He died at sea in February 1822:
According to a petition to the Colonial Secretary from his wife Frances, her husband served in several of His Majesty’s vessels. The last one from which he departed this life was the ship “Porpoise”.

Thomas Plows (Convict, Sir William Bensley, 1817) is of course her Son-in-Law, the husband of her daughter Jane.

On 26 Feb 1769 a daughter Frances, child of Richard and Mary Vivian, alias Hoggard, was baptised in Dorset. This is commonly assumed to be the convict Frances Hoggard, but the convict was supposedly born in 1770. The Waymouth Prison Register, on the other hand, says she was 25 in 1799 when she was convicted in Dorchester, making her year of birth 1774.
