John Aylett, one of 336 convicts transported on the Barrosa, 31 July 1839, Convicted at Central Criminal Court for a term of 10 years.
from his trial, John Aylett aged 24 and Henry Johnson aged 22, were indicted for stealing, on the 4th of December, at St. Marylebone, 1 sauce tureen and cover, value 2l. 10s.; 4 silver candlesticks, value 16l.; 6 knives, value 10s.; and 6 forks, value 10s.; the goods of Thomas Lindsey Holland, the master of the said John Aylett, in his dwelling-house. Both sentenced to 10 years transportation.
Henry was a black man whom John took home to his master's house for the night, after they had been drinking together. A witness said I have seen Aylett write — this paper found on Johnson is his hand-writing.
The prisoner Aylelt further says—" I declare solemnly, if it was the last word I was ever to speak, that I never saw him before I met him that night in Regent-street, and I did not owe him any thing—it is not any of it true."
