1830, 23 March: Philip HYDE per Mary 1819 – imprisoned on the hulk “Phoenix” with eight other prisoners who came “per HM Brig Alligator from Norfolk Island” (see NSW, Australia, Convict Records, 1810-1891; Phoenix Hulk: Entrance Books, 1825-1831).
Note: “Phoenix” features in the lives of so many convicts in New South Wales that I have provided some extra information about her here.

“Phoenix” was a three-decker merchant ship, built on the Thames in 1798. On a voyage in 1824, on which she first transported convicts to Van Diemen’s Land, she was damaged on the Sow and Pigs Reef inside Port Jackson Heads, New South Wales. She was then condemned and turned into a prison hulk. She was the ONLY prison hulk to operate in NSW and was broken up in 1837 (Source: This information was taken from Wikipedia).
