George Beck departed the Downs on the Fanny on 25/8/1815.
The Fanny arrived in Rio on 21/10/1815.  George Beck said he fell overboard near Rio and spent 6 1/2 hours in the water.

George then spent 3 years in Buenos Ayres working as a printer.  He returned to England and was arrested in the parish of St. Martin in the Fields, for being there before the expiration of his sentence.

Then aged 27 in 1818 he was sentenced to death (again) and again transported to NSW per John Barry 1819.
