CSI - Thomas Appleton, Thomas Gibson, John Giles, Jacob Innes & Joseph Onus where apprehended stealing a wagon full of supplies from the naval yards in Sheerness, Is of Sheppy, Kent in early 1801. John Giles escaped. The others where arrested and tried via the Kent Lent Assizes at the Jail Delivery, Maidstone, Kent on the 16 March, 1801 by Judge Baron Hotham. All where sentenced to be hung but this was later commuted to life. Innes & Onus spent 1802 on a Thames prison hulk & where transported to Sydney, NSW, aboard the “Glatton” in 1803. In NSW they took wives, raised large families and became early landholders in the Hawkesbury area of Sydney. They are buried in the same graveyard at St Peters Church, Richmond.
