Re: Baud rate

One of my ancestors was transported ( Great Great great Grandfather I think ). His heinous crime was to be found with a gun in private woodland and accused of poaching. His choices were then death or transportation.

I believe the general idea was to just export suspected criminals rather than provide actual justice, as the former was cheaper.
