William Seaward (or Seward) was convicted of wounding a man in a fight outside a pub in Crediton, Devon.  He left behind a young wife called Elizabeth who pleaded for him to serve out his sentence on the hulk in the Thames, but to no avail.  Her letter begging for mercy and trying to excuse his crime is in the National Archives in the UK.
