and still, the lobster held on

My story is set in Victorian London, but I'm having some major problems.

  1. One of the characters gets trasported off to Van Dieman's Land, which I think is Tasmania (I can't find anything online--I'm Google'd and Wikipedia'd ad nauseum). Does anyone know which year they stopped transporting criminals to New South Wales, Tasmania, Australia, etc? 
  2. I need a book, anything about Seven Dials (I've read a book called Slammerkin set there, but it's like trying to find information on Five Points before Gangs of New York came out). Any sugguestions?
  3. Was there public transportation?
