Claimed convict


Born about 1796 in Somerset and married Ann Flay in 1818. He was found guilty at Gloucester Assizes of stealing a gelding from Samuel Weston, blackmith valued at £6 (I have a copy of the trial notes).

Originally sentenced to death that was commuted to transportation for life.
The Asia set sail in 1827 and arrived March 1828 in Devon in Tasmania. On arrival he was described as 5ft 5¾" tall with with grey eyes.

In November 1840 Samuel received a conditional pardon having spent thirteen years in Tasmania and a full pardon 3 years later in September 1843.
