Thomas Hudson was transported to Van Diemen’s Land on the ‘Dromedary’ arriving 1819. 7yr sentnece.

10/8/1820: Assigned to Mr. Brown - insolent to Master. Hard labour in gaol gang 1mth.
14/9/1820: Abscond, running to woods. Attack dwelling house of Mr. Henderson, firing and wounding him. 100 lashes and transfer to Macquarie Harbour for remainder of sentence.

Execution at Macquarie Harbour.—On the 16th instant Thomas Hudson, Francis Oats and William Allen, who had severally been found guilty of murder under most abhor- rent circumstances, underwent the awful sentence which heaven and earth pronounce for their offence, at the penal Settlement, Macquarie Harbour. The behaviour of Hudson was penitent and manly, but we are sorry to add, that his fellow culprits and sufferers displayed to the last,an apathy of conscience quite incorrigible. (Hobart Town Gazette 25 Feb 1825)
