There seems to be some confusion, with Frederick Gee D.O.B, some records indicate 1821, others indicate 1826. His death certificate, indicates 61 years of age at his death. This would mean, he was born in 1826. If he was born in 1821, he would have been 66 when he died, I think the certifying Doctor, was in error, when he recorded 61 years of age.
Another way to look at it, is he was 18 when convicted, transported in 1839, this makes his birth year of 1921 more probable. If his d.o.b, was 1826, he would only have been 13, when transported. Cannot find confirming birth records from the UK.
