That has to be a different George. :)

... In 1806 he came to New South Wales with her in the Albion, as a Lieutenant in the 61st Regiment ...

That is curious. The 61st is not listed as one that served in Australia or had soldiers of serving as guards on convict vessels to Australia.

It looks like he was in the 61st but as a passenger not as a guard.

The 'Albion' made three trips with convicts: 1823, 1827 and 1828.

Oh. 1806 is not on that list.

Ok, thanks Geoff.


Taken from - HERE

... The Albion is known to have returned to Port Jackson on 19 August 1806[4] under the command of Captain Richardson after a voyage of 4 months and 17 days carrying a cargo of general merchandise for Robert Campbell (1769-1846).[7][8] Passengers on this voyage were the said merchant Robert Campbell and his family who were returning to Sydney,[9] Robert Campbell's nephews the single Robert Campbell Jnr. (1789-1851)[10][11] and the married George Thomas Palmer (1784-1854)[10] coming to New South Wales with his new wife as a Lieutenenat in the 61st regiment but with permission to settle as a free immigrant and also coming to join his parents who were already in the Colony (his father John Palmer (1760-1833) was business partner to his uncle) ...
