Robert Bales

a labourer, born in Berkshire, was convicted of highway robbery at Reading in 1785 and sentenced to death. He was later pardoned on condition of 14 years' transportation, and arrived on the Alexander. The shipping list had him down for life transportation and it took until 1806 to sort out the matter. After he was emancipated, Bales worked as a schoolmaster for the next twenty years.
