     His son Richard went back to England to help him but found him riding "4 in hand" in Rotten Row, so he turned around and returned to NSW. He is not identifiable in the 1851 census.
     The London Evening Standar reported on 2 March 1847: It was an action in trover to recover a £500. bill, for which, as was alleged, the plaintiff had given some consideration, that it had passed into the hands of the defendant, and that he bad detained it, and refused to give it up. Mr. Serjeant Shee opened the case, and called Thomas Dawson Bowker, who deposed. — l am a money agent. Mr. Wilkinson is a bill-discounter. In September last I received from him a 500.. bill, and on the 11th I gave it to the defendant for the purpose of discount. He said he would get it done for me. I afterwards met the defendant on 'Change, in the presence of Wilkinson; Mr. Hemsworth handed me the bill; and immediately, at Wilkinson's desire, I handed it back to Mr. Hemsworth. Cross-examined by Mr. Hurafrey.— l was first applied to about this bill by Wilkinson on the 15th or 16th of August. He requested me not to make any personal inquiries respect-ing the parties who had drawn and accepted the bill. I told Wilkinson that I had heard of handbills cautioning persons not to take tbis and other bills which were described, as they had been obtained by fraud. I said the circumstance ought to be mentioned to Mr. Hemsworth before he discounted the bill, but Wilkinson told me I was not to mention it, as such things were better kept quiet. The same morning the drawer of the bill and bis attorney had given me notice that I was not to part with it, on tbe ground that it had been fraudulently obtained ; and this was stated by the same parties to Mr. Hemsworth in Wilkinson's presence. After some dispute it was arranged that Mr. Hemsworth was to keep the bill until Wilkinson could satisfy him that he (Wilkinson) had given value for it, Wilkinson undertaking to do so next morning. Wilkinson offered it to me at 40 per cent, discount. I said I could not do it under 60 per cent. It was after-wards arrranged that whatever I did at above 30 per cent, was to be divided between Wilkinson and me. I heard the name of Chandler mentioned at some time. I think Wilkinson said he had given that person money for it. Mr. Hemsworth certainly wished bim to show that be bad done so before he gave it up. In answer to questions in re-examination by Mr. Serjeant Shee, the witness said, — I told Mr. Hemsworth when I asked him to discount the bill that he could not have more than 30 percent. Wilkinson said I was to get it done; for instance, I agreed to get it done for 60 per cent, lf I got it done at 30, I was to keep the other 30, to be divided etween Wilkinson and myself. Wilkinson did not then say that (handler had had 3501. for the bill. He had told me in a letter that he bad given "'some money" for the bill. He said to Mr. Hemsworth that the bill belonged to him and his party, and money had been paid for it. Thomas Jones, clerk to Mr. Brown, attorney, Sackville- street, said he went with Wilkinson to Mr. Hemsworth, and saw him and Mr. Milbourne..
