Forged one pound bank notes

A good and relatively early Calendar of prisoners tried and sentenced at the Lincoln assizes, including the interesting case of one man sentenced to transportation for being in possession of forged banknotes. The charge reads as follows: 'William Lindsey, aged 25, late of Billinghay, labourer, charged with having in his custody two one pound bank notes, purporting to be notes of the governor, and Bank of England, which notes were forged and counterfeited'. Lindsey was transported for a sentence of fourteen years, departing 9 October 1816 aboard the convict transport Sir William Bensley. He arrived in New South Wales during March the following year.
