John MARSHALL was transported to Sydney, New South Wales per the ‘Layton’ 1829. He absconded from the service of Dr. Cook, Sydney and returned to England. He stated he stowed away on the ‘Gilmore’ without the assistance of anyone. He had enough food until Rio de Janeiro when he came up on deck. The Captain wanted to give him up but the Consul would not take him. He returned to England but was recognised by a Constable at Birmingham. Resentenced to a life sentence transportation - this time to Van Diemen’s Land (Tasmania) per the ‘John’ II arriving there 1 Dec 1833.
