William Little had his sentence of death reduced to life imprisonment. He was convicted of stealing sheep from Mr. Gee of Papplewick on 6.6.1820.[Nottingham Journal 29.7.1820] It is unclear in which jail he languished between his conviction for sheep-stealing in 1820 and 24th May 1822 when he embarked upon the prison ship â€œBellerophon,â€ moored at Woolwich. After nearly four months’ incarceration, Little found himself shipped to Van Dieman’s Land aboard the â€œMorleyâ€ with 172 other convicts. Once in Tasmania, he managed to behave himself and keep a clean record, receiving a conditional pardon on 24th February 1835 and an absolute or free pardon on 3rd June 1839, having served almost 20 years of his life sentence.
