Lowen was transported for life for highway robbery. Under Archer he worked on a number of fences, but as a splitter also spent time in the forest with two other convicts and seemed to have spent several days out there at a time together as they took ‘a cask of water all their tools and rations and allowances in a cart (bedding etc added).’
In Lowen was sent to the police on a charge of laziness and insolence. He was given 50 lashes and Archer reported that he ‘returned to the hut in the evening’. Later that month he was still described in Archer’s diary as an ‘idler’ who ‘couldn’t work at all’ but this may have been due to illness as soon after he was taken to the doctor who ‘bled him and sent a dose of jalap… he thinks he shall try to work tomorrow.’ Lowen died at just 29 and was buried in Hobart Town.
