The Escape of John McHenry

In this episode we have a look into the life and crimes of one of the more cheekier escapes from the Geelong Gaol.  

John McHenry or James Clark as he was originally known grew up in the streets of Shoreditch in London.  Before coming to Australia he would see the inside of some of the most notorios prisons in England.

McHenry was transported to WA before eventually making his way to Victoria with his family.  It would be here he was introduced to the Geelong Gaol as a prisoner.
