George was 26, 5’6" tall, black hair, hazel eyes, ruddy complexion.  The charge was horse theft but apparently he was running away from a bastardry charge, or trying to, when he stole the horse to escape.

He married Mary Ann McAllister who was born in the colony, the daughter of 2 sonvicts on 27/5/1803, nearly half his age.  Mary died 4/11/1845.

George was a Bullock trainer/Driver and he died 19/9/1863 and is buried at Gannon’s Forest Cenetery NSW.
