Claimed convict


In January 1841, Andrew faced court at the City of Oxford on the charge of larceny for stealing a rabbit. He was sentenced to two months imprisonment in the Oxford Gaol, the same gaol his father had served a sentence in seven years earlier!

Later the same year, on October the 18th, Andrew faced the Magistrate at the former Oxford Castle , now courthouse and gaol, again for the crime of larceny (for stealing a watch). The Judge was not lenient, and Andrew was sentenced to transportation for 14 years to Van Diemen’s Land
After spending 169 days confined inside the Oxford Gaol, Andrew left the United Kingdom onboard the ship, ‘Surrey 4’, taking 128 days to sail across the world to Tasmania. He arrived on the 11th of August 1842, aged 19 years old.
