Sworn before us the day and year first above written Jury Cramp C.S. Crouch, Mayor Wm Scrivens

Jury learned that his nephew, who had been in partnership with him in a coach building and painting business had been embezzling the books. If Jury stayed he would have to report his nephew for his crime and this could either result in the death sentence or transportation for Life to the Colony of Port Jackson for his brother's son. Jury was afraid that he also could be charged over the embezzlement and could end up in Debtor's prison. He had no other option open to him but to flee with his family, leaving the farm and their furnishings behind hoping that when sold this, would cover all debts outstanding.

On the 15th of November 1833 Jury and his new wife, but not his children from his first marriage arrived as immigrants on Rubicon at Sydney, New South Wales.

From 1833 to 1838 he was living at Cobbitty in New South Wales. After that he moved to the property Mulgowrie near Binda, New South Wales where he lived until his death in 1849. At Mulgowrie he worked as a farrier.

Jury died in 1849 at Goulburn. He was buried on the 16th of September 1849 Kangaloolah, New South Wales.
