Judah and his brother were convicted in 1819 for “hiring burglers to repossess unpaid for goods”. The mandatory death sentences were quickly converted to transportation for life and they set up in business in Hobart Town soon after arrival there in 1820. Joseph moved north to Evandale and Judah remained a convict until his death, which meant he was unable to return to London to divorce his wife under Jewish law. He donated part of his land to build the Hobart Synagogue and his lovely house has pride of place on the corner of Liverpool and Argyle streets in the city. His wife and several of his children followed him to Tasmania.
