Colonial Prisoners/Convicts

Not all of our colonial ancestors left the British Isles voluntarily. Some were prisoners of war, soldiers, men of conviction fighting for a cause only to be captured by the crown. Others far less noble, or perhaps simply desperate, were convicted of crimes and sentenced to transportation for a period of 7 years to life in North America, the West Indies, or Australia. You will find men and women of the Guthrie name on both lists.

Before the American Revolution in 1776, the English government used the threat of transportation to the colonies as a deterrent against any criminal activity. Not only did the policy potentially prevent crime, it also cleared the country of those individuals who failed to conform to society’s rules–or the crown’s–by sending them to territories where they would be required to work off their sentences as indentured servants.

This convenient means of ridding itself of it most undesirable citizens was unpopular with the colonists as the growing number of convicted criminals made up to ten percent of the population. Between 1615-1699, the English courts sent about 2,300 convicts to Virginia and Maryland, and 52,000 more prior to 1776. A small percentage of these ended up in Canada or the other North American colonies. When, the local government sensed trouble on the horizon in the form of a possible revolt by the indentured convicts and African slaves, Governor Berkeley and the Virginia Council attempted to pass a law that would prohibit convicts from being transported there. No “gaol birds” wanted. The British government overruled them by passing the Transportation Act of 1718.

Under this legislation, merchant companies were paid a fixed sum to ship convicts en masse to the New World colonies. Merchants and ship captains under contract were free to sell off the convicts as indentured servants. This practice had been ongoing in a smaller measure since the 1600s.

The Ships Carrying Convicts to Colonial Territories were Merchant Vessels.
The ‘Lady Castlereagh‘ was one of the ships used to transport convicts to Australia.

Once the Americans declared their freedom from British rule, the practice of transporting criminals to the former colonies ceased. The crown needed new options for expansion and a new place to send its prisoners. Just six years earlier, Captain James Cook, an explorer, navigator, and cartographer, reached the coast of New South Wales, Australia, and claimed the land for Great Britain.

Britain chose Australia as the site of a penal colony, and in 1787, the First Fleet of eleven convict ships set sail for Botany Bay, arriving on 20 January 1788 to found Sydney, New South Wales, the first European settlement on the continent. Other penal colonies were later established in Van Diemen’s Land (Tasmania) in 1803 and Queensland in 1824, while Western Australia, founded in 1829 as a free colony, received convicts from 1850. South Australia and Victoria, established in 1836 and 1850 respectively, remained free colonies. Penal transportation to Australia peaked in the 1830s and dropped off significantly the following decade as protests against the convict system intensified throughout the colonies. In 1868, almost two decades after transportation to the eastern colonies had ceased, the last convict ship arrived in Western Australia.

Vandals Beware.


The earliest ship manifests listing the transported prisoners/convicts no longer exist, although there are probably random clues to be found in other documents. Here are the records located for the Guthrie men and women who were transported to North America, the West Indies, and Australia.


TIMELINE

1650: Prisoners of War – The Battle of Dunbar – The Unity
A major defeat of at the Battle of Dunbar in 1650 sent 5,000 Scottish soldiers on a ‘death march’ of over 100 miles to their makeshift prison at Durham Cathedral. About 3,500 died as a result of the journey and the conditions in which they were kept. The British government sent 150 of these Scotsmen to Massachusetts. A manifest of those transported aboard the Unity has never been discovered, however a compilation of likely men has been made by the Scottish Prisoners of War Society. The list includes one name of interest: Robert Guthrie/Gutridg of Massachusetts and Block Island, Rhode Island (see Family Focus – Sep 2019) as a probable candidate to be one of the prisoners. He appeared in local records shortly after the end of likely indentures, and he was strongly associated with other Scots in the area confirmed or possibly connected with the Unity.

The Lynn and Braintree Iron Works supplemented their work force with indentured servants and purchased prisoners transported to Massachusetts after the Battle of Dunbar.

1671: CAPTAIN JOHN GUTHRIE – Petitioned for License to Transport
Laurence Trent, Merchant, and Captain John Guthrie, skipper of the Ewe and Lamb, petitioned the Privy Council of Scotland in 1671 for a license to transport vagabonds to America. Before and after their licensure, the Ewe and Lamb, master John Guthrie from Leith, Scotland, is noted to have transported passengers from Leith to Virginia in Jan 1667, 1668, 1669, Feb 1670, May 1672, Feb 1679, and Aug 1683. Unknown if these were all free settlers or if their number included convicts.

Could this be the same Captain Guthrie/Guttery who shows up in the Virginia records during the 1660s? [See Related/Unrelated – Tidewater Virginia Families – Dec 2019]

“A ship of that name was searched at Leith in 1668 because it was believed to have aboard a number of people who had been kidnapped and were being transported against their will.” [Source]

1715/6: SCOTTISH REBELLION – The Susanna & The Wakefield
The Jacobite Rising of 1715 was the attempt of James Francis Edward Stuart to regain the thrones of England, Ireland, and Scotland for the exiled House of Stuart. His forces were defeated and those who supported his cause were tried for treason, sentenced to death, or transported. Several men of the Guthrie name are listed in the ‘Jacobites of Angus’. Three of them were noted to be transported from Liverpool to South Carolina.

The Battle of Preston (9-14 Nov 1715) was fought during the Jacobite Rising of 1715. After their defeat, 1,468 Jacobites were taken prisoner. High ranking Jacobites were executed for treason. Others were later pardoned by the Indemnity Act 1717. Many of the ordinary Highland clansmen captured at the Battle of Preston were transported to the Americas. [Wikipedia]

THE VOYAGE DOWN UNDER

Most of the entries below apply to Guthrie men and women who were sentenced to transportation to Australia. A few are listed without a final destination, so may have gone to North America or the West Indies. The trip across the Atlantic took about 3 months, but the way Down Under took 4 – 5 months.

Once in Australia, prisoners had to serve out their sentences as indentured workers, typically for terms of 7, 10, or 14 years to Life. Loyalty to a single master paid off with a potential for a reduced sentence.
– 7 Year Term – Minimum 4 years with 1 master or 5 years with 2 masters.
– 14 Yr Term – Minimum 6 years with 1 master, 8 years with 2, or 12 with 3.
– Life Sentences – Minimum 8 years with 1, 10 with 2, or 12 with 3 masters.

Tickets of Leave were issued by the magistrates, which gave the prisoners leave to live within a certain district as long as they reported in regularly. In some cases, they were permitted to work for themselves and own property.

Conditional Pardons were issued, but required the convict to remain in Australia.

Absolute Pardons granted the convict complete freedom allowing them to return to England, or wherever they wanted to go.

Certificates of Freedom were issued to the convicts upon completion of their sentence.

TIMELINE (CONTINUES)
The children, men, and women below ranged from Age 11 to 63. Most were convicted of varying levels of theft. Some were repeat offenders. The worst of the social crimes appears to be a rape. There may also be some political crimes in the mix as people were caught orchestrating or issuing oaths, and there was one case of piracy. The data has been compiled from multiple sources, which provides more information on some individuals than others.

THE CASE:
1187.  MACDONALD SMITH,  THOMAS GUTTER-IDGE,  SOPHIA MEYERS, and  MARY TURTON were indicted for burglariously breaking and entering the dwelling-house of Thomas Smith, about two in the night of the 13th of July, with intent to steal, and burglariously stealing therein, three spoons, value 1l.; one glass, value 1s.; 6lbs. of bacon, value 2s.; 26 shirts, value 2l.; three shifts, value 3s.; seven petticoats, value 7s.; three frocks, value 3s.; one habit-shirt, value 1s.; one veil, value 2s.; one pair of trowsers, value 6d.; eight handkerchiefs, value 5s.; one apron, value 6d.; two bed-gowns, value 1s., eight caps, value 2s.; one pocket,value 6d.; four pinafores, value 2s.; and five pair of stockings, value 5s., his property; one hat, value 2s., the goods of  William Fry; and one tea-caddy, value 2s., the goods of  Mary Ann Hill .

MR.  THOMAS SMITH . I keep an academy at Gordon House, Kentish-town, in the parish of St.Pancras .

ELIZA BELL . I am servant to Mr.  Thomas Smith . On the 13th of July I went to bed between ten and eleven o’clock, and secured the back and front doors; I did not look at the windows; I was the last up. About three o’clock in the morning, I was alarmed by my fellow-servant, she was up before me. I went down below, and found the shoe-room window, which looks into the backyard, open-it was day-light; I missed the articles stated in the indictment out of the laundry, which communicates with the shoe-room. I had seen them safe the night before.

MR.  THOMAS SMITH re-examined. The house appeared to have been entered by putting the sash of the shoe-room window down; I observed it at three o’clock in the morning. I do not know whether it was fastened the overnight or not; there were no marks of violence on it. There is a private bolt, which goes across the laundry-door-it goes by the kitchen-door, through the wall, into the laundry-door; it is impossible for any one to enter the laundry without getting the bolt out. I found the crossbolt on the ground in the kitchen-the kitchen and laundry-doors were open, and one of the back-doors, which goes out of the laundry. We were not alarmed till the servants came down in the morning to wash. Mr. Fry is one of my assistants. All the things were taken out of the laundry. The property was worth four or five pounds at the lowest.

NEHEMIAH SMITH. On the 13th of July, between four and five o’clock in morning, I was coming-from Kentish-town to Covent-garden-market, and met Mr. Smith’s son, he told me if I met the prisoner (he described Macdonald Smith), to apprehend him; about half-past seven o’clock, as I returned from Covent-garden, I met the prisoners, Gutteridge and Smith, at the end of Pancras-street, Tottenham-court-road, each of them had a bundle – I stopped my cart, got down, and asked Smith what he had got in the bundle? he said he had his clothes. I told him they were stolen, and he was my prisoner, and I must apprehend him. He attempted to run away; I overtook. and secured him with the bundle. Gutteridge ran away with his bundle. As I was taking him to the watch-house, I met Squib. We took him to a public-house, and took two silver table-spoons, one tea-spoon, a knife, a rummer, and the hat-lining from his pocket.

GEORGE SQUIB . I am the watch-house-keeper. On the 13th of July, I was in Tottenham-court-road about half-past seven o’clock in the morning; I saw a crowd at the end of Pancras-street, I went up, and found Smith had the prisoner, Macdonald Smith, in custody, with a bundle – I took charge of him, and as soon as I got hold of him he shifted about, as if he wanted to get rid of something. I took him to a public-house, and found two table-spoons and one tea-spoon in his breeches-pocket, and a glass and a hat lining in his coat-pocket.

JAMES LEGGAT . I am a tailor. On the 13th of July, I was returning from the city to Kentish-town about half-past seven o’clock in the morning, and met the prisoners,

Smith and Gutteridge, with each a bundle in their arms, and Smith had a hat in his hand – I knew nothing of the robbery – They passed me and walked on-when I got to Kentish-town I met the officer, Smith, he gave me information – I told him what I had seen and went in pursuit of the prisoners, we met Mr. Nehemiah Smith who said he had taken one; I returned to the public-house and could not find Gutteridge; the prisoner, Smith, told us at the watchhouse where to find the bundle – I went to a field at the back of Mr. Smith’s house, and found a bundle secreted in a hollow tree as he had directed us, it was not either of the bundles which I had seen on the prisoners before.

WILLIAM JEFFERSON . I am an officer. From information which I received, I went to No. 1, New-street, St. Giles’s, and found the prisoner, Gutteridge, there, he had a hat on his head and a handkerchief in it-there was another hat on the chair, and an empty bag in his pocket-there were two hats in the room – I asked him which was his, he said the one he had on – I took him to the office, leaving Morris in the room – I returned again and found the prisoner, Turton, there; and while I was searching the room the prisoner, Meyers, came in; Morris searched her and took a duplicate from her; and found a child’s spencer, a pair of stockings, and an handkerchief in a box which Turton said was her box; I told her what I was looking for, she said she had no more of the property, I asked her what she had done with it, she said she sold it to a woman at a public-house-door, and she did not know who she was – I asked her what she had done with the money she said she bought some bacon and greens; I afterwards heard some bacon had been stolen from Mr. Smith’s, I went back to the lodgings and brought the bacon away, and found a pair of shoes and gaiters in the room which the prisoner, Smith, said were his; as Meyers was being searched she took the duplicate out and put it on the table.

BENJAMIN MORRIS. On the 14th of July, I went with Jefferson to No. 1, New-street, St. Giles’s, and apprehended Gutteridge there – I staid there while Jefferson took him to the office-the two female prisoners came in – I found a duplicate in Meyers’s hand – She said it was for a shirt which she had pledged.

JOHN MURRAY. I am a pawnbroker. The prisoner, Meyers, pledged a boy’s shirt, for 2s.6d., at our house on the 13th of July.

WILLIAM FRY . I am assistant to Mr. Smith. I missed my hat the same morning – I am certain all was safe the overnight in the passage-the lining of the hat is mine, the hat found is also mine, the lining is cut out of it.

(Property produced and sworn to.)
GUTTERIDGE’S Defence. I was going to work and found them in the fields.
SMITH’S Defence. It is as he has said, I gave the shirt to Meyers thinking it belonged to Gutteridge.

THE CASE:

SECOND COUNT, the same, only stating them to be the property of William Fielden .

THIRD COUNT, the same, only stating them to be the property of John Morris .

JOHN COLE . I am a watchman, in the employ of John Morris, who is a lighterman . On the 20th of April I was watching on board the Bainbridge, which belonged to him, and laid at Alderman’s Wharf, on the Middlesex side of the river-the prisoner was an excise watchman , watching the cargo, which was coffee. About two o’clock in the day he said he was sleepy. I told him he might go and lay down, and if they began to work I would call him. He went down to the fore-scuttle; he could get to the coffee-bags there – They were all safe before he went down. He staid there about half an hour, then came up, and went over the ship to the Berwick, which laid about five ships off. About six o’clock I saw him again coming ashore. Leckey told him to be sure and return by six o’clock in the morning-Leckey was come to relieve him. I noticed to Leckey that his coat pockets knocked against his legs, as if something was in them-Leckey followed him. I had seen the bags all safe half an hour before he went down. The hatches were all locked-no person went down but the prisoner.

ROBERT LECKEY. On the 20th of April I was extra excise watchman, and was put on board the Bainbridge, which laid opposite Alderman’s Wharf. The prisoner and I were to relieve each other – I watched at night and he by day. I first went on board on the 18th; there were 500 bags of coffee on board, which were stowed fore and aft in the main hold. About a quarter before six o’clock I went to relieve the prisoner. In consequence of what Cole said, I followed him through Ratcliff-highway, and saw some coffee drop out of his hat as he walked. His grent-coat pockets were bulky – I overtook him. We went into a public-house together, and I sent for an officer, who found coffee in his hat and coat pockets. He begged forgiveness, and said it was his first offence.

ROBERT WILLANS . I am constable of Shadwell. On the 20th of April I was fetched to the White Lion, public-house, about a quarter after six o’clock, and found some coffee in the prisoner’s hat and in his left-hand coat pocket-it weighed 3lbs.. He said it was a trifling thing, and he never did so before. He left his great-coat in the public-house – I did not search it.

JOHN BROWN . I am a constable. I fetched the prisoner’s coat from the White Lion – He said it was his; I found some coffee in it. He begged of me to say nothing about it.

WILLIAM HURST . I am inspector of the Excise. On the 21st of March, hearing the prisoner was apprehended. I went on board the Bainbridge, and found 500 bags of coffee there-one of them in particular had been cut open and sewed up with tar twine-it appeared loose; some must have been taken out. It is marked T N, No. 163, JB/C, and weighed 107lbs.

JOHN SHEPPERSON . I am foreman to Mr. John Morris.
On the 15th of April I weighed the bag JB/C, No. 163, T N-it weighed 120 lbs.

EDWARD FAULKNER . I am clerk to Edgar and  William Corrie , of Mincing-lane, broker s; they bought the 500 bags of coffee for Mr. Fielden – They were put on board Morris’s lighter.

THE CASE: (#1)
1026.  GEORGE GUTTERIDGE was indicted for stealing, on the 20th of June , two brass chucks, value 2 s., two ring handles, value 6 d., and one brass rod, value 6 d. , the goods of  John Henry Price .

JOHN HENRY PRICE . I am a brass-worker , and live at No. 2, Kendall-mews, Gee-street, Manchester-square . On the 20th of June, the prisoner came there, and enquired for a situation. I asked if a pot-boy’s place would suit him – he said, Yes, thanked me, and went down stairs. He came up in a few minutes, and said he had a waistcoat to sell, and wanted me to buy it. I refused. He offered it to me for 3 s. Seeing he was so distressed, I gave him a shilling in part of it – he was to come for the rest a little after seven o’clock. When he went away the first time I looked out and saw a suspicious man, with a bundle, waiting outside, which made me suspect the waistcoat was stolen, and I followed them to Gee’s-court, where they offered something for sale – this made me suspect something. I lost them. I went to Marlborough-street, and then went home, but missed nothing until towards evening, when we missed these things. I went to the shop in Marylebone-lane, where I saw them go, and asked if they had such things – they said No, but I found the ring-handles. The boy said he bought them with other metal. I asked to see it, and it was my other things.

JOHN HAWKINS . At the time this happened, I lived in Marylebone-lane. My father kept an old-iron shop; the prisoner came with another boy, rather bigger than himself, on the 20th of June, about three o’clock in the afternoon, and brought some old brass, I gave him eight-pence or nine-pence for it, at 5 d. per lb. – it was the articles stated in the indictment; I gave the money to the prisoner, I think.

WILLIAM SELLERS . I am a constable. I took him in charge, he acknowledged taking it.

THE CASE (#2):
863.  GEORGE GUTTERIDGE was indicted for stealing, on the 4th of May , twenty-one silver spoons, value 34 s. , the goods of  James Blair .

WILLIAM WALLIS . I am butler to Mr.  James Blair , of Devonshire-place . On the 4th of May, the maid gave me information, I ran out and saw the prisoner running; I followed him to Weymouth-mews, crying Stop thief! then lost sight of him – he was brought to me in two minutes by Binning. I gave him in charge, and the twenty-one spoons were found in his pocket.

WILLIAM BINNING . I live in Slade’s-buildings, Blandford-mews. I saw the prisoner running down Weymouth-mews, Wallis was following him crying Stop thief! I secured him.

WILLIAM TOOMBS . I am a constable. He was given into my charge. I found twenty-one spoons on him.

ELIZA AVIS . I am servant to Mr. Blair. I saw the prisoner in the pantry taking something out of a drawer, where the plate was kept; he saw me, and ran out. I alarmed the butler.

(Property produced and sworn to.)
