a marine, arrived on the Friendship and was attached to Captain Campbell's company. In July 1788 he was in court over the loss of his meat ration. In November, he was gound guilty of the manslaughter of a fellow marine with three others, and sentenced to 200 lashes.

On 26 march 1789 Asky and five other marines were found guilty of robbing the public store and hanged the next day. Judge-Advocate David Collins blamed the crime on the marines' drunkeness, and their relations with some of the worst of the convict women. The marines had spent too much time at the womens' huts where 'not withstanding the internal regulations of their quarters, they found means to enjoy their ill-acquired plunder'.
