Liverpool assizes; http://www.chartistancestors.co.uk/chartists-transported-australia/
James Stott: A 24-year-old Oldham man, Stott was tried with a number of others at Liverpool Crown Court in December 1848 with “sedition” and “compassing or devising to levy war against the Queen”. Unlike the others, however, Stott was also charged with “Chartism”. He was sentenced to transportation for life. He sailed for Australia on the Adelaide, arriving at Hobart on 29 November 1849. The nine English Chartists transported on the Adelaide were immediately granted tickets of leave allowing them to seek paid work subject to certain police checks on their activities on their arrival, and were pardoned seven years later in December 1856.
