The James Grime who was on the Justicia Hulk is not the same person. THIS James Grime was in Australia by the time the other James Grime (who was from Norwich) was on the Justicia Hulk in 1821. THIS James Grime was on the Retribution Hulk for a short period in 1819 before his journey to Australia aboard the SS Malabar.
