George Bannister was about 20 years old and was one of three youths who were convicted at the Old Bailey on 21 April 1784 for the theft of clothing from a house at Millbank. A small girl saw one of the boys getting out of the window with the clothes under his arms. They were traced through their tracks in the snow. Bannister said he had gone to look for his mother’s ass, and was running along the river bank to warm himself when he heard the cry of ‘stop thief’. He was found hiding behind some willows: he said he had taken shelter there from the storm. After being sentenced to 7 years transportation to Africa, Bannister was sent to the ‘Ceres’ hulk on 5 April 1785, aged 18, and delivered from the ‘Censor’ hulk to ‘Alexander’ on 6 January 1787 of the First Fleet.
