Details: Joseph Lycett was born in Staffordshire in around 1774 and worked as a professional portrait and miniature painter. Like fellow convict, Francis Greenway, Lycett was convicted of forgery and transported to Australia for a term of fourteen years. In 1815, a year after he arrived in Sydney, he was again convicted of forging bank notes. As punishment, Lycett was sent to the secondary penal colony of Newcastle where he began work as a legitimate artist and designer. In Newcastle, Lycett attracted the patronage of the commandant, Major James Wallis, who had also commanded the General Hewitt the ship on which Lycett was transported. Under Wallis, Lycett was involved in designing Christ Church, Newcastle, and painting its altar piece. The influence of Major Wallis earned Lycett a conditional pardon, and he carved out a successful career, primarily as a landscape painter..............

Details: We have already mentioned the apprehension of Lycett at Birmingham, charged with forging Provincial Bank Notes. The Shrewsbury Chronicle of yesterday says: 'A man named Lycett was found guilty of forgery at our assizes some years ago, and sentenced to transportation for 14 years. Previously to his banishment, his abilities excited the sympathy of many persons in Shrewsbury and its vicinity. His sketches were admirable; and the rapidity with which he painted upon canvass astonished every person. Mr. Hunt, of Boreatton, and many benevolent gentlemen, gave him orders for painting while he was a prisoner in our county gaol; he executed them. When he went to Botany Bay, he probably had a considerable sum of money. When he arrived there, the governor patronized him. After the expiration of his sentence he returned to England, and published twelve months ago, a work entitled 'Views in Australia'. He has returned, we suppose, to his old practices..
