On the 29 March 1821 at Surrey Assizes held at Kingston upon Thames Edward Hubbard and a number of other people were found guilty of handling forged banknotes. They were sentenced to 14 years transportation.

He was imprisoned on a Prison Hulk Ship probably at Woolwich, London.

On the 18 June 1821 he was one of many prisoners sent to Van Diemen’s Land (Tasmania) on the ship “Malabar”. The ship arriving on 21 October 1821.

Punishments like chain gang, lashes and the treadwheel appear on his record.

14 years later he received a Certificate of Freedom on the 29th of March 1835 but by 1838 he is back in again. He finally receives another Certificate of Freedom on the 7th May 1845.

His last record is leaving George Town, Tasmania for Port Fairy, Victoria on the 9th November 1846 on the ship Essington.

During his time here he may have met up with his brother in law Samuel Dawson Silk, husband of Mary Ann Hubbard, who arrived in 1835 and died in 1846!
