Some notes from "The Convict Ships of Australia" that may be help in future
. Alt spelling "General Hewart"
. Built in Calcutta in 1812
. 1st class ship of 973 tons.
. Naval officer's record show 80 crew. Redfern says 104
There is more additional info, but I don't have time to transcribe the 2
photocopy pages I have.
I would be interested to know if there are any other descendants of Wm
Coates out there or any of the men that were with him on this ship. I think
he would have embarked at Portsmouth.
