Edward Oxford (1822-1900), the first of eight people who attempted to assassinate Queen Victoria, on 10th June 1840. Charged with treason, he was found 'not guilty by reason of insanity', much to Victoria's fury (she later tried to get the verdict 'guilty but insane' introduced), and was sent to Bethlem Hospital ('Bedlam'). A model prisoner and obviously highly intelligent, he was transferred to Broadmoor in 1864; three years later he was released on the proviso that he left the country, choosing Melbourne as his destination. Australian interest.
