Rueben Buckner appears under the name of Thomas Williams, on 17th March 1791 at the Quarter Sessions in Lewes, East Sussex, where he is found guilty of fraud, false pretences and theft. The items he was found guilty of stealing, or obtaining by fraud, (he claimed to be a merchant,) included books, linen, china, glassware and pictures, suggest that he was trying to set up house! At the Easter Session of the Lewes Court, May 1791, he is convicted and sentenced to Transportation for Seven Years. He was subsequently transferred to the convict transport “Pitt”

Death after July 17, 1791 (aged 24 years)
Text:

Reuben died probably during the voyage of the ship 'Pitt' from England to the colony or shortly after it arrived in the colony on 14 Feb 1792. The journal of George Thompson, who sailed in the Royal Admiral, May 1792 records that of the 450 that came from England in the Pitt only twenty nine were alive six weeks since at a general muster. Reuben Buckner does not appear in the return of those Convicts who have died or run from the 'Pitt', but this return lists only those who either escaped or died whilst attempting to escape. No mention of Reuben Buckner in New South Wales appears on musters or other documents and one can assume, because of the high death toll amongst convicts on the Pitt that Reuben Buckner died on the voyage or soon after landing in 1792.
