George Cowper’s proper name was Martin Griffin. He was originally convicted, under that name (see other record)and transported to Western Australia on the “William Jardine” 1852. He obtained his Ticket of Leave. It is thought he escaped and returned to England. He was then reconvicted, at Winchester, for larceny, and returned to Western Australia on the ‘Hougoumont’ in 1868 under the name Cowper.
