344. Geo. Driver.

Burial Record in parish of Hobart Town, in the County of Buckingham. 1828. https://stors.tas.gov.au/RGD34-1-1p071j2k
George Driver, Gaol, Executed for Murder, buried 30 Jan 1828, age 23,  Convict.

A dreadful murder was committed at Macquarie Harbour in January last, the unfortunate victim, John Hoaly, having been stabbed in three places in his body, and his throat cut from ear to ear. It appears that he was murdered for the sake of a pound of bread. The murderers, Samuel Higgins and George Driver, have been subsequently tried in Hobart Town, found guilty, and executed January 30.
