There is a probate packet available for Auguste Guerry de Lauret died 24 Dec 1881  https://www.records.nsw.gov.au/item/299692

I can photograph this for you next time I am there if you wish.  It *should*
contain a death cert, a will and details of heirs.

No problem Paul  :)

And I could possibly photograph his naturalisation application too - or do you already have this?

His naturalisation papers, dated 11 November 1856,  state that Auguste Pierre Clement de Guerry de LAURET has satisfied the conditions to become a British subject.  He is a native of France, aged 44, arrived NSW per brig Letitia in 1839, is currently (1844) residing at Kenmore near Goulburn and wishes to become a land-owner.

(Aside - looking at the paper I note that naturalisation allows the applicant to have all the privileges of a natural-born British subject in NSW except that s/he may not be a member of the Executive or Legislative Council)

Auguste Pierre de LAURET, 23,  was found not guilty of fraud in 1834
Date of Trial: 16 June 1834 at Clerkenwell Sessions, Middlesex, England

On on-line public tree gives his birthplace as Pondicherry India, 1811, and his parents as Antonie de GUERRY de LAURET and Sophy Barθre but there is no source given for this, although they do correspond with the names on the NSW death index.  Names are given for Sophy's parents, also.  There is a photo of him on this tree.

Paul,  I looked at the 19th Century British Newspapers site and couldn't see a newspaper report about the trial. 

The on-line tree is on Ancestry. 

I find it slightly odd that there is no mention of him arriving in Sydney on the Letitia which seems to have come from "Feejee".  I would have thought that someone of his background would have rated a mention in the newspapers of the time, however I couldn't see anything on TROVE.
