Edward Speed arrived in Van Diemens Land on the ‘Campbell Macquarie’ 01/01/1820. The Archive record does not state where the ship sailed from or if indeed it was a convict ship. There are only 2 passengers listed who embarked at VDL (perhaps it had unloaded at another state?).

Edward was tried and convicted at Hobarton (Hobart), Van Diemens Land (Tasmania) on 04/12/1833 of horse stealing. 7 yr sentence. Convict no. 66742.
