4/4/1799 Bath Chronicle and Weekly Gazette Somerset, England:
John Smith, and James Salway, for stealing geese, were sentenced to seven years’ transportation.
No ship found for John Smith.
Can find no records for James Salway - 43 convicts died on the voyage - cannot find a list of the names - perhaps James Salway was one.
