Information submitted by Glen Hickson

James was convicted at the Herts Epiphany Quarter Sessions 1851 of stealing 8 bushels of potatoes & was sentenced to 7 years transportation. For some reason he was not sent & the census of that year shows him in Armley Gaol, Leeds. In 1863 he was convicted of larceny again & sent to Western Australia for 7 years although he did not sail until 1866.
