Petty Crime:
Although there are a few severe cases, it is amazing to read of the pettiness of the court processes of the time. Most crimes were for stealing shawls, hankies and other items of clothing. Food and other small items were also on the pilfer list. Life sentences were given in bad cases or if a convict had been in trouble before, even a previous sentence of ten days for drunk could get a convict an extra seven years transportation. The more serious crimes like murder and manslaughter were few and far between and were usually dealt with on the Gibbet.

Highway robbery was automatically a life sentence and although much more prevalent than killings they also, were in the minority. Most life sentences were for second offenders, one young man received life for stealing some corn only because he had been jailed for 6 months on a previous occasion. The very young were not spared stiff sentences. Children as young as 11 years, were sent to the colonies. One 15-year-old lad in the above list, received 10 years for stealing a shirt. It is hoped that he survived the ordeal and found his way home to his family.

Special notations.
* The father of these two young brothers, Richard Berresford, arrived in Australia as a convict in
1822.
* John Brown went by the alias Edward Speechley in his short career as a highwayman.
* John Davis had already been to Australia. He had been given a term of seven years in 1824 and
was transported aboard the ‘Princess Charlotte’ which arrived at Hobart in that year. One can only
assume that he must have enjoyed the first experience.

*Charles Evans had also been previously transported to Australia, he came as a free child with his mother aboard the ‘Friendship’ in 1818. His real name was Bernard Duffey and his father had the same name when he also was transported for life aboard the ‘Shipley’ in 1817. It easy to see how traumatized families were when separated. It seems obvious that the mother committed a crime one-year after the father was sent out for life, bringing the 15-year-old Charles with her. The young Bernard [Charles Evans] Duffey went back to England when old enough and took a partner or married while there. He stole a snuffbox to get his ticket back to Australia and it would be fascinating to know if his wife and two daughters were able to join him.

Although not listed as an official convict ship by Bateson in his book The Convict Ships, the ‘Buffalo’ certainly carried enough convicts, to warrant inclusion here. Many vessels brought out convicts in small numbers, and even the first fleet ship, ‘Prince of Wales’, carried only 50 prisoners. There is a great deal of interest in these ships and smaller vessels, which came from other parts of the world. They transported soldiers and citizens from British settlements in Canada, the West Indies, India, South Africa and even America. These convicts suffered the same fate as those who came direct from England, Scotland and Ireland.

Her master, Captain Ager, went ashore after she anchored, leaving the mate and Surgeon Kelsall aboard and in charge. The ship parted her cables and drifted toward the shore and many of the towns folk came out to watch the events unfolding as first the ‘Abercrombie Robinson’ went ashore followed by the ‘Waterloo’. The townspeople were busy helping the 700 soldiers and crew of the former and managed to get hem all ashore without loss.

The story was different for the ‘Waterloo’, she was in dire straits and went to pieces in the heavy surf. Her condition before the storm was said to have been terrible according to Surgeon Kelsall and it was luck that helped him to survive when aided by a convict he had ordered un-fettered when the storm broke. The convict pulled him from the sea as he was almost done. Of her 219 convicts, 143 were drowned and one had died while en-route to Capetown.

His wife and children may have followed him out, for a later application for food and the crown denied sustenance for his family and a recommendation that they apply to some charitable organisation was suggested.
