John McGregor, No 251, age 14, Crime, House breaking, Edinburgh, 15 Nov 1824, sentence - 14 years, How disposed of - NSW Albion, 10 Sept 1826.

The prison hulk, the Euryalus, an ex-frigate of the Trafalgar fleet, was moored at Chatham.  Over the twenty years that this hulk serviced juveniles, about 2,500 boys of fourteen and under passed through. There were also considerable numbers of older boys both in the juvenile hulk and distributed among the other hulks.  From the Euryalus, boys were transported both to New South Wales and to Van Diemen’s Land.
