In the early eighteenth century, Thomas Wainewright found himself moving in Londons high society, with the likes of Charles Dickens. Leading an extravagant lifestyle he soon ran low on money, and had to begin to resort to devious means to keep himself from going bankrupt. Beginning with forgery, he soon moved on to more profitable crimes, inheriting large sums of money with the help of strychnine. By 1835 Thomas Wainewright was working in a chain gang in Tazmania, having poisoned his own uncle, among several others.-http://www.portfolio.mvm.ed.ac.uk/studentwebs/session2/group12/16th.htm
