The Mary departed Calcutta 17th March and arrived Port Jackson on 4th June 1836, bringing 14,000 bushels of wheat and fifteen prisoners of the Crown.
The convicts had all formerly been soldiers and most were originally from Ireland although Walter Boyce and John Elliott were from England.

James Hogg (no regiment given)
Calcutta, (illegible, tiny writing better viewed on reel—previous convictions) both(read and write), labourer, 25 yrs, fair, dark, good.

Report of Gaoler of Calcutta Gaol, March 1836:
“This man for the last seven years has spent the greater part of his time in the Calcutta jail and house of correction. He is decidedly of bad character, he will be found an intimate associate of Donnelly’s and if any unpleasant affair takes place I would advise their immediate and complete separation”.

This earlier court-martial may refer to the same James Hogg.
At Fort William, Nov 11 1829, Gunner James Hogg, 4th comp, 5th bat. Artillery, was arraigned “with having, at Dum-Dum, on the night of the 20th Oct.1829, proceeded to the arm-rack of his company, and taking therefrom a bayonet, with the avowed intent of attempting the life of Staff Sergeant Sharpley, of the same regiment; he (Gunner Hogg) having on the same day been discharged from the hospital, after receiving a corporal punishment to which he had been sentenced for a similar offence (threatening the life of Staff Sergeant Sharpley), by a regimental court-martial held at Dum-Dum, on the 3d of the same month. Also with having, at two other times, threatened that he would take the life of Staff Sergeant Sharpley.” The court found the prisoner guilty, and sentence him to suffer solitary confinement for a period of eighteen calendar months.
