Bio Mentioned in "With Convicts to Australia ..". This is an excerpt "Next day the convicts were told that "indulgences would be denied them" unless the perpetrator of the assault was delivered up, and in half an hour Charles Gil-bert was given into custody. The following day the Guards and the ship's company were as-sembled under arms on the poop while two convicts from each mess witnessed the prisoner receiving three dozen lashes. Then he was kept in custody of the Guard but with normal ra-tions, which he was still receiving after a month, presumably in consideration of his physical condition after the flogging.
...
He says that it was rumoured that Gilbert was not the culprit but had come forward to relieve the others from the stifling heat. This could ex-plain his release after six weeks."2 
Research The death in CWA looks to be wrong.
