Thankyou for replying jaywit. John marston was transported on the indefatigable and died in Tasmania in 1827. I'm looking for his birthplace if possible. There is some online info but I need to verify it .   kind regards, Sue.

Do you know when he was transported?

I found this but it's Northampton not Nottingham.

I'm not sure but probably late 1700 to 1805. Thankyou for your time but George isn't my family. I think I will send a letter to the offices to see if they can verify his birthplace. Thankyou very much for your help jaywit. Kind regards, Sue
