Book Description

Major James George Semple (Lisle) the notorious swindler. The four reports of his Court appearances recorder here, and the claims against him, extend in all to c.38 column centimetres. He was later convicted and sentenced to transportation to 'Botany Bay' per the 'Lady Shore'. His conviction and sentencing, are not recorded here, but when he was eventually shipped for 'Botany Bay' the ship was the subject of a mutiny, in which he took no part. He was cast adrift, with others, making land on Brazil. Neither Semple nor the 'Lady Shore' made it to New South Wales.
