Deciphering Old Handwriting: Take 2

Yes, once again I am crowdsourcing transcriptions, in this case because I want to be really sure about what it says particularly the top right and the information under remarks. I know what I think it says but I'd like a second, third and fourth opinion as it may help to sort out the mystery of John Green.

Any Suggestions?


  1. Sharon,

    I'm happy to help out but it's much easier to work from what you think you have than to start from scratch. Can you post your transcription and I'd be happy to take another look.


  2. The Remarks
    "Arrived free by his own statement but believed to be an impostor........list from Supt of Convicts Sydney 28 October 1845"

    Can't decipher signature
