Executrix above named was duly Sworn.  Edward Moore, Surrogate.Note follows:   Effects under £100 - Testatrix died 
29th December last.
Witnesses:   James Croom was very likely the same Schoolmaster instated at Melksham in 1776 [TNA]. He appears to have married 
                      Susannah Fry 3rd January 1773 at Melksham. He died Testate at Melksham in 1817. No link to the Scard Family was 
                      found with either James or his wife Susannah. He probably drafted the Will at her instruction.                      
                      Jane Vezey nor the Vezey Family had no recorded connection to Melksham found to date prior to Jane's Witnessing 
                      Ann Scard's Will. However, a John Vezey married Jane Kingsbury in 1752 [LDS] at Box, Wilts, still recorded at Box in 
                      1797, they had issue amongst which their daughter Ann [bapt. 1759 [Box]] likely the same who died testate at Melksham
                       in 1824 being the only other Vezey recorded at Melksham. No connection to the Scard Family was found.

                     Marriage - Thomas Cogswell to Elizabeth Ingram 22nd July 1793 at Melksham [LDS member entry] by whom she had one
                      recorded daughter Ann Cogswell baptised 3rd August 1794 i.e. daughter of Thomas at Melksham [extract]
                      Several Baptisms for Elizabeth Ingram could apply. No Burial was found in NBI for Elizabeth Cogswell at Melksham.
                     There was a Will recorded at Melksham under the name Ann Cogswell, a widow, in 1824. It is not known if this is relevant.
Comments: No indication of issue, the only widow eligible for this entry to date would be Ann Thick the 2nd wife of Thomas Scard 
                     of Mere, Wiltshire. Thomas died in 1769 two years after the marriage leaving issue by his previous wife.

Both Convicts

Henry Scard No.1. (the younger) [1822-1851]

Henry Scard was aged 22 when he was shown indicted in the Wiltshire Quarter Session Calendars
                   "Date 31st Dec. 1844 - Prison - Type B [i.e. 'bad' meaning 'prisoner' as opposed to a  victim 'G' [Good]] 
                      Age 23 - TR 15*  [*Transported 15 years]. [FHO].  
Henry was recorded 'a Tailor'.
He departed the motherland from Spithead on the 10th January 1847 per Sir Thomas Arbuthnot and arrived at 
Port Melbourne 4th May 1847 recorded aged 25, with 338 others on the Sir Thomas Arbuthnot.

He appears to have met a elder man also Henry Scard who also traveled on the Sir Thomas Arbuthnot as a free-man 
although formerly a convict.  The elder of the two appears to have befriended the younger and both remained in 
Young Henry did not live to realise the expiration of his sentence and died three years after his arrival, buried 
on the 12th May 1851 at St. Peter's Melbourne at the recorded age of thirty-one?

Henry Scard [the elder] died eighteen months later on the 5th Jan. 1853. 

Neither appear to have married or had issue in Australia.
Henry Scard No.2. (the elder) [1804-1853]

Henry Scard was indicted  at the Old Bailey London 14th January 1824 for stealing 4lbs of Mutton valued 2s. at Brick Lane, 
St. Lukes, London at the age of seventeen. Immediately following his release Henry, was again charged in the June Sessions
at the same venue for which he received sentence of Transportation for Life.  Part 1:  Part 2. 
Henry Scard departed Sheerness/Falmouth either 7th November/16th December 1824 per 'Lady East' He arrived Hobart, 
Van Diemen's Land [Tasmania] 9th April 1825. [208 Convicts aboard] 
Six years later Henry was given a Ticket-of-Leave on the 17th September 1830 (the liberty of working where and for whom 
he wished) for good behaviour.
Five years later he was recorded in the Hobart Town Courier: 3rd July 1835 when deprived of his Ticket-of-leave on the charge 
of Gross demarcation. This was the result of a long drawn out Court Hearing where Henry Scard was accused of giving false 
evidence involving the theft of one heifer and news articles lingered over the next three years. Reading the articles poor Henry 
was undoubtedly innocent of the theft itself,  but a victim of circumstances.
Overview: Mr. Bryan was a well respected land owner and the employer of Henry Scard among four others who lived in a Hut 
provided on the property. During the Trial Henry Scard gave evidence; Some of the evidence presented by Henry Scard; 
'Another  witness was called, viz, H. Scard, a ticket-of-leave man of good character, and this man swore that – I remember  last 
Thursday;  I went out with Jackson and brought a beast from Cluan paddock, and took it to Glenore; it was branded WB: we 
delivered it to Mr. Winter as Mr. W.Bryan’s property; went into Glenore  paddock and drew off  a yearling bull for  killing, 
it had no brand, and was brought to Cluan as R.B’s property, we drove  it to the paddock at Cluan and put it into the yare and 
branded it; we drove it  with some cattle, the property of R.Bryan, and then killed it.  By charles  Lonsdale, J.P. – Who told you 
it was R. Bryan’s property? Scard.- No  person told me it was his property . I was ordered by R. Bryan to drive a head  of cattle
to Glenore, and to bring another back to Cluan; I did not know what  head of cattle I was to drive back, but drove the one the 
prisoner Jackson fixed upon, I drove it straight from Glenore to Cluan stock yard. There is a multitude of reference to Henry 
and his Testimony at the Trial and although it is clear that Henry did not fix to steal the bull, he was implied a perjurer;
One of several articles involving the case: "The fate of the unfortunate prisoner “Scard” will long be remembered at Westbury; 
and will  operate as a warning and example to convicts not to speak the truth. In my presence, the Magistrate endeavored by 
threat to make “Scard” falsify himself, and failing in this design, he deprived him, with your sanction, of his ticket-of leave, 
and sentenced him to work in a road gang.
Three years later Henry's Ticket-of-leave was re-instated, published on the 18th May 1838. Four years later Henry was granted 
a Pardon, published by the Hobart Town Courier on the 27th May, 1842. He sailed to Melbourne per Sir Thomas Arbuthnot
where he met another younger Henry Scard who was a convict aboard this ship.  Henry befriended him and the two remained
in Melbourne. Nine years later Henry Scard died in Melbourne, Victoria on the 5th Jan. 1853, buried on the 7th Jan. 1853 at 
St. James Melbourne at the recorded age of 48 years, noted 'Labourer'. He was predeceased by his younger ward Henry Scard 
seventeen years his junior of Wiltshire who died three years years prior.  See left panel

Saturday 3rd January 1874. Issue 4318.  This article has been place here due to it's sensitive nature.  
He was the son of Henry James Scard [the elder] & his wife Maria nee Sutton.  Transcription Submitted by David Kenny, 
a Gosport Scard descendant, with special request that it should be displayed in memory of little Frederick.
The Borough Coroner (W. H.  Garrington, Esq.,) held an inquest at the “Constitution Tavern,”  Herford-street, Landport,

On Saturday morning, the 20th ult., her husband got up, lit the fire in the sitting-room, and left home at ten minutes past seven 
to go to his work according to his usual custom.  Soon after  her husband left home, she heard the deceased scream out, and on 
going  downstairs, from whence the cries proceeded, she found the deceased standing in the passage at the foot of the stairs. 
His night gown and undershirt were on fire. She took up a piece of carpet and threw it over him, and rolled him on the floor, 
by those means extinguished the flames. The deceased gave her no account as to how the accident happened, but his brother, 
a child two years older, told her that after their father had gone to work they went down stairs, and the deceased stood inside 
the fender to warm himself, when his clothes took fire. Witness was in bed at the time, and had not heard the children go down  
stairs. She screamed when she saw what had happened, and Mrs. Millward, a next door neighbour, came in directly. 
They examined the child, and found extensive burns on various parts of the body, including the face, neck, arms, abdomen, and thighs.
Mr. Gilmore, surgeon, of Commercial road, was sent for, and as he was from home, Mr. Barnes, another neighbour, conveyed the 
deceased to the Royal Portsmouth, Portsea, and Gosport Hospital, where he was  seen by the house-surgeon, who dressed the injuries,
after which the deceased was taken home. The house-surgeon wished to detain the deceased in the institution, but witness preferred 
his being taken home. Mr. Gilmour attended soon afterwards, and continued to attend to him up to the time of his death, which took 
place at a quarter-past five o’clock on Monday morning last. Mr. Robert Gilmour deposed to having examined the deceased, and 
described the nature of the burns, which, he said, extended from neck to the thighs. The deceased was in a state of collapse when 
he first saw him, but afterwards rallied a little. The wounds did not heal, mortification set in, and the deceased died from the effects 
of the  burns. The jury, after a brief  consultation, returned a verdict of  'Accidental death from burning.'
