Oh!

Edit: rechecked record, it says 1837 is estimated.

Arrival 1836
On 23 April, one hundred convicts were received from the hulks at Woolwich and on the 29th and 30th, 300 more from the hulks at Portsmouth.
...
One of the prisoners received from the hulk at Portsmouth was found to be insane and was returned to the hospital, leaving 399 to embark on the voyage. Three more died on the journey leaving 396 prisoners to arrive in Port Jackson on 30th August 1836. The total number on board on arrival was an astonishing 498 people, almost 200 of whom had been ill at some time in the voyage.

====
Arrival 1838
The Moffatt was fitted out at Deptford in October 1837. She could carry 400 prisoners. Three hundred men were embarked at Woolwich and another one hundred at Sheerness before the end of October.
They set sail from Sheerness on 9 November 1837 ...
...
The Moffatt departed Hobart and arrived in Sydney on the 4th April 1838, where she disembarked seventeen adults, twenty one children, nine soldiers of the 50th regiment and thirty prisoners of the Crown.

I'm wondering if he was one of the three who died. If he landed and lived about 7 years then there should be a ToL or CoF on NSW Records site for him. I can't find a death in NSW index.

Yeah, such lack of info in NSW and no ToL/CoF would maybe suggest that he could have been one of those 3, he was ill with jaundice earlier on the trip :rolleyes:

Source: Australian Joint Copying Project. Microfilm Roll 90, Class and Piece Number HO11/10, Page Number 269 (137)

That adds to the mystery. Seems he landed but no further trace in NSW.
