This would have him born in 1852. The registration of his death includes the information that he was 48 years of age at the time of his death in 1817.

Note: Downloaded from ancestry.com.au.

Note: Convicted of fraud by deception with regard to two law books. Shortly before his conviction he was employed as a 'servant' by an attorney of the Middle Temple, hence the subsequent references to him as 'attorney's clerk'. Allegedly 'in great distress' he had obtained two books by false pretences from the servant of another attorney, and these he had offered for sale.
