John re-offended when he was coming toward the end of his 7 year Sentence. He was Sentenced to Transportation again, this time for Life, and sent to Norfolk Island, where he was accidentally killed.
He was age 19 when he Stole from his Employer Henry Shaw, of Lymington, Hampshire. His Brother William was also involved, he played a lesser role, receiving Stolen Goods, and he was acquitted. 
I have only recently discovered these reprobates in the Family.
