The poacher in question is Alexander Grewar from Braemar, Scotland; he is one of my ancestors. He never made it to Van Dieman's land. He died in Carse of Gowrie, having returned to more orderly ways after his ship wrecked off the coast of Ireland (he survived). I have a newspaper article where the poem appears - the clipping is from circa 1900.
