I can not find an arrival, Vic or SA, or BSW, so went to Tasmanian convicts, which is a good site
and John Chatwin turns up - came and aged 22 so born about 1820, arrived in Hobart 18 Jan 1843, 270 convicts transported on the Duchess of Northumberland, departed 01 October 1842,
Convict Record, Description, Indent and Surgeon's records John is not in this list, so 'merged in the crowd'
