Henry Taylor was tried at Old Bailey, London on 14 January 1784 for stealing iron bars and railing with a value of 15 shillings.
He was sentenced to transportation for 7 years and left England on the Friendship aged about 33 at that time (May 1787). His occupation was listed as stocking weaver. He died in 1806.
Guilty of return from transport following the Mercury mutiny.Report from Dunkirk hulk was “troublesome at times”.

Denis Pember on 19th January, 2016 wrote:

In the colony, Henry formed a de facto relationship with Hannah Hawkins (Convict, Neptune, 1790).
This relationship must have commenced in about July 1791 at Sydney and continued when they were transferred to Norfolk Island in December 1791.
A list in Jun 1794 designates Hannah as the wife of Taylor. The couple had no children and they had separated by 1801 when Hannah returned to Sydney.
