Thank you Lynne for looking that up for Anna and shedding light on his
alias. In my haste this morning I took that he was not fully victualled
and thought he had arrived later than the other Calcutta Convicts. In my
senior senior moment I forgot that the victualled list started from their
time at Port Phillip not England. I will send Anna the page I referred to in
the Muster book so she can see it.
Again many thanks
