Henrietta was tried at the Old Bailey on 15 Sep 1813 and was acquitted of forgery of a bank note for want of evidence. She was then tried for possession of forged notes, for which she was found guilty and sentenced to 14 years transportation. On the same day, Edward Gregory also appeared at the Old Bailey, charged with stealing 'from the person of Thomas Slate', ie pickpocketing, a pocket book to the value of 6d and a bank note to the value of one hundred pounds, but since Thomas Slate failed to appear in court, Edward was acquitted. Hentrietta was transported to the colony aboard the ship 'Broxbornebury' which arrived in the colony in Jul 1814. Her four children travelled with her. One of her sons entertained passengers with acrobatic tricks: 'A little boy amused them on deck, tumbling, his mother a convict for uttering forged notes, his father a free settler on the 'Surrey'. Their name was Gregory, and his father did tricks at fairs...and the boy said he could tumble while on hoseback. This was the same boy who had been whipped for stealing water'. (from a diary of Jeffrey Hart Bent, first NSW Supreme Court judge, 26 Mar 1814). Edward came as a free settler in 1814 on the ship 'Surrey'. Typhus broke out aboard the ship 'Surrey' less than two weeks after departing England in March 1814. On 26 Jul, as the ship was off the coast of New South Wales, and fell in with 'Broxonrebury' off Shoalhaven, the ship's master died of tyhpus. The remaining officers of the 'Surrey' called for a volunteer from 'Broxbornebury' to come aboard to steer the 'Surrey' into harbour. One man agreed to this task and both ships arrived on 28 Jul. 51 people died on board the 'Surrey': the master, two mates, the surgeon, eleven other officers and seamen and 36 convicts. The resulting enquiry concluded that one of the reasons for the severity of the illness had been that the master and surgeon deprived the prisoners of soap, keeping it to sell, but as both had died of typhus, they were beyond the reach of punishment.
