Samuel Jones was 16 years old when transported for “Stealing Rabbits”.  His occupation was a “Baker’s Boy”.  His native place was Chatham.

17/2/1834: Samuel Jones, not more that 16 or 17 years old was convicted of an “Unnatural Offence” and sentenced to death.

He was sent to Norfolk Island instead, and on 21/6/1842 was one of the 12 convicts who attempted to seize the brig “Phillip”.  In the ensuing battle with guards he was shot and died.  He was 25 years old.
