Blimey! What a no-good man Mr Utting seems to have been!  He is a distant cousin, but assaulting women seems to have run in the Utting family unfortunately.

Strange that George Cooper has not left much of a trace and is, indeed, not showing up in the criminal register.  I had forgotten about that collection, so thank you for the link.

Really appreciate the help so far.  Thank you!

George COOPER is in the criminal register.  Born 1830 I think.

Cando, the date of conviction for George in the criminal register is 1 day out and he was convicted for assaulting the policeman - not for stealing, and the date and place of birth seem wrong.  Edward’s record has him being convicted on 2nd of October which matches the article.




The article describes them as young men and this George would be 53!  And you have him being born in Tasmania from the marriage record.


Only the rough date and the name seem to match, IMO.  What do you think?

I suggest you purchase George's marriage cert.

I transcribed George's place of birth from my resource.  Of course one hopes that George was accurate with his information on the marriage cert.
