It is not known to whom George was assigned to but he served his sentence in the Paterson area of NSW. 12th May 1847 he received a Ticket of Leave (no: 47/425) this was later cancelled because George was indicted for uttering base coin.  He was found guilty and served 12mths hard labour.  He received his 2nd Ticket of Leave 20th December 1853 (no:53/122).  In 1855 George married Tamar and they had 12 children.  In 1858 he received a conditional pardon.  In the early 1860’s George and his family moved to the Uralla area where he finally settled at Maitland Point where he lived until his death. George is buried in the Uralla Cemetery but there is no headstone.
