Tried Bristol court 3 Jan 1851. Sentenced to 7yrs transportation. Crime not known. Convict Conduct record contains very little detail, although written very faintly it says age 12, blue eyes. No family members listed on indent.
Died at sea on the voyage 2 August 1851 and never reached Van Diemens Land.
