Answering my own question, I found James Green's personal description and conduct record.  He seems to have been a rather more hardened criminal than Marcus judging by the multiple offences he committed AFTER transportation - being AWOL, feigning sickness, refusing to work, and severely beating an overseer. 

He came from London, which makes me wonder how he and Marcus met and ended up being in the North East of England.

The burial ground for St Matthew's is located in Stephen st, New Norfolk, separate from the church and not very large. Around the time of Marcus' death, an invalid hospital and asylum at New Norfolk was being expanded into what would become a large facility, so I had wondered if it had its own cemetery.

This page lists the Pioneer Memorial Walls in the St Matthew's Stephen st site and confirms it as the burial ground used by the hospital, saying "...there were more than 1950 burials here with many in multiple graves.  These graves contain people of all denominations and status : prominent citizens, free settlers, children, convicts, inmates of the nearby asylum and paupers."

Marcus name can be found on this plaque as Hazeldine, the spelling used in his death registration

Matthew,

THANK YOU!!! This is tremendously helpful and puts the final piece of the jigsaw puzzle in place for Marcus.  Can't thank you enough for all the info you've provided.  I'd have never got there on my own.  If ever I can repay the favour, please let me know.

Kind regards,
Mark
