Hmm interesting. If you search Free Settler or Felon? website for Firstname: George Surname: Hall Ship: Roslin you'll see the following:-

Do you have his Death Certificate? Where was he born?

Ken Griffin has indexed the Hertfordshire Assize Records 1784-1853 from all five courts and they appear in a book called 'Transported Beyond The Seas', for the Hertfordshire Family History Society. The details would be online. This is the only index available.

Maybe your George Hall,

From the UK, Prison Hulk Registers and Letter Books 1802-1849 there was a prisoner No 615 George Hall, 18, convicted 28th November 1833 at Hertford.

He was received from Hertford on January 21st 1834 and disposed to NSW 17th May 1834.

Crime, Highway robbery attended with violence.

Looks like that James Biggs 23 and George Copps 21, were crime partners with George Hall as they have the same details although James died 24th August 1834.

Well done Gerry.

George was 19 years old when he arrived at Port Phillip Bay on the "Roslin Castle" on the 15 September 1834.

Another register shows George Hall, George Copps and James Biggs tried at Hertford in the winter of 1833 for robberey and sentenced to death which was commuted to transportation for life.

Looks like he died at 35 in Melbourne on 24th Jan 1850.
