SYDENHAM & HODGSON, VA, MERCHANTS OF LONDON

In 1747, the business of transporting English felons to the American colonies changed hands. Jonathan Forward, the London merchant who had held the governmental contract since 1718, decided to "leave off business" and assigned much of his trade to two former employees, Jonathan Sydenham and Thomas Hodgson. Sydenham (born about 1715) had been Forward's agent in VA, where he had married Mary, daughter of John Morton of Richmond.
The firm of Sydenham and Hodgson, operating from Philpot Lane in London, quickly rose to become a major force in general trade with VA and MD, as well as in the convict-shipping business. In 1763, after a series of financial losses, the firm as declared bankrupt. However, Sydenham's son - Jonathan Forward Sydenham - continued in the business and by 1768 was able to describe himself as "the Contractor with the greatest part of the counties of England for the transportation of felons. By 1772, he had taken a partner, Duncan Campbell, with whom he continued as contractor for transports until the outbreak of the Revolutionary War ended that trade in 1775.
A good insight into the trade conducted by Sydenham & Hodgson is provided by an examination of the principal chancery lawsuits in which they engaged - although most were discreet to the point of total silence on the subject of criminal transportation. The following is a summary of these suits and the depositions relating to them, taken from cited files in the Public Record Office, London.
[C12/1904/18 and C12/1904/24]
7 April 1749, Sydenham & Hodgson entered a bill alleging that at the beginning of 1747 they agreed with Henry Blomart, owner of the Beaufort - then bound from London to Cape Breton and Rappahannock River, VA - that her captain, Elias Perryman, should load tobacco and collect debts in VA on their behalf. Perryman now refuses to com to account. In his answer, sworn on 7 April1749, Blomart says that he was persuaded to contract with the plaintiffs, about whose dealings in VA he formerly knew nothing, because of a recommendation from Jonathan Forward, to whom the plaintiffs were formely agents. The Beaufort sailed from London on 29May1747, when the plaintiffs wrote to Joseph Morton in VA, instructing him to procuse tobacco on their behalf. The ship arrived in the Potaomac River on 4Dec1747 and did not arrive back in London until January 1749. Elias Perryman answered on 8May1749 to much the same effect. A schedule of tobaccos loaded by ship in VA is attached and includes shipments made by the following individuals (whose consignees, when named, are listed in parentheses):

Joseph Ball, Samuell Ball; Spencer Ball(to Edward Atthawes); Richard Barnard; Richard Barnes; Laurence Battail (to John Hanbury); John Brookwood; Elizabeth Buckner; John Camp; Charles Carter, Esq.(to John Hanbury); Col. Landen Carter (toJohn Hanbury); Thomas Carter(to John Hanbury);Col. Armistead Churhall (to William Loney); GOWEN CORBIN (to John Hanbury); JOHN CORBIN (to James Buchanan);Wm Cowne (to Humphrey Bell); Capt. Hugh Crafford; James Crosbie......
