In 1830, a William Andrews of Tiverton, aged 36 was committed for trial at the Devon Assizes, on a charge of stealing a black mare, the property of William Pickard of Parkham. It seemed possible that this could be the man who was transported to Van Diemen's Land in 1838, but the sentence of the court was Death, so it seemed that it couldn't be. I then found a series of letters (HO17/93) at FindMyPast, which clarified the matter:


Letter from William Andrew to Home Secretary dated 5th April 1830 )

Letter from various Well-Wishers to the Home Secretary, April 1830 )
