Edward or Henry Peever was convicted of burglary at Worcester on 5 March 1831 and arrived at VDL on the `Lord Lyndoch’, 18 Nov. 1831. On 26 July 1830, according to his trial record in England, with three others he had broken into a house and stolen a considerable quantity of food and clothing.  A newspaper report of his trail reveals that he and his friends in crime came from Birmingham. He was sentenced to be hanged, but was reprieved and transported for life.(11) He was granted Conditional Pardon No. 909 on 24 November 1842 which was extended to the Australian colonies 9 Feb. 1847.  That is, he was able to live as a free man but not permitted to return to Britain. He was, however convicted of stealing a hay fork in April 1861 and sentenced to 12 months goal. He was in goal at Port Arthur.
