Benjamin Nott was sentenced with his brother William Harbor (or Harbour).  He was drowned in Ringarooma Bay in Tasmania, trying to rescue a young girl.  I am uncertain of the year

Could Patricia Allison please contact Herb to discuss Benjamin Nott who is Herbs Great Uncle
Herb’s Great grandfather is William Harbour a convict. William Harbour is Benjamin Nott’s brother.  Benjamin took his mother’s maiden name when he got arrested.
