HUBBARD’S Defence. I was returning from the play, saw a man run away, and I picked up the bottles and watch.
JONES’S Defence. I met Hubbard and Randall, and went to the coffee-shop with them.
RANDALL’S Defence. I met Jones, and afterwards met Hubbard - he said he found the things.

He was one of the first group of 29 convicts to go to Moreton Bay on the Amity which departed Sydney on the 1st September 1824, bound for Moreton Bay.  Many of them had skills which would be useful in establishing a new settlement. They arrived at Redcliffe 12th September, and set up temporary huts and gardens to plant vegetables.  They did not feel the site was very suitable, so by May 1825, the settlement was moved to Brisbane, a few miles upstream.
Many of the convicts were volunteers who hoped to gain their ticket-of-leave as a reward for helping to establish the new penal colony.

The John Barry had arrived at Portsmouth on 16 April 1819 and on 20 April, 60 male convicts were embarked from the hulk Laurel and 80 from the hulk Leviathan in Portsmouth harbour. On 23 April 1819 two more convicts were sent on board the John Barry from the Leviathan. One of the passengers on board the John Barry was John Thomas Bigge, New South Wales’ first Royal Commissioner. The John Barry finally arrived at Port Jackson on Sunday 26 September 1819 (See The Campbelltown Convicts).
