There appears to be a very confusing situation with John’s records. viz…..
There are two John Browns, both aged 22 in 1810.
Both tried the same day, January 15th 1800 at the Old Bailey.
Both Convicted and sentenced to death.
This sentence commuted to Life for both on the same summary.
(Transcript 18000115-5 before the Middlesex Jury and Lord Chief Baron and 18000115-43 before the London Jury and Mr Recorder)
Both transported on Earl Cornwallis, August 1800 and arriving 12th June 1801.
