Research note 01: A George COE, convict off the Mandarin c1840, died in Hobart 1841 aged 23. From the convict record this George was from Great Maple?????. He stole 8 Pigs. He is confirmed as the one who died in the Hospital in 1841, BUT when he landed he was 34 years old, and had a wife and 5 children back in England. No way could a 21 year old have 5 children. I am leaving this here as his age at death when registered matches ours. His trial date in Essex was 15th October 1839. He did not produce any children in AU that were registered.
