Salisbury Journal,Monday, March 12. 1827
Mr.Justice Park and Mr.Justice Burrough arrived in this city on Saturday, and opened the commission for holding the assizes for this county. The following prisoners, upwards of 80 in number, are on the calendar for trial :
Henry Heasman, for stealing 10lbs of mutton at Fisherton ...

Convict Hulk record: HO 9-8-5 p 39 From Fisherton 4 Apr 1827 (Leviathan)
Henry Heasman, 41, stealing mutton, convicted at New Sarum, 10 March 1827,sentenced to 7 years. Left hulk for NSW 9 May 1827 (Leyton)

This suggests that Henry Heasman was NOT on the Marquis of Hastings but on the Leyton unless a mistake was made in the hulk record.
