Thanks to the great efforts of Peter and Shirley Bramley I now know that my George Heald was tried with Joseph and James Hudson, James Glover, George Fisher and Charles Gomersall.
The six men were accused of burgulary and the hearing was on 20 July 1844. From Georges transport papers it appears that only Joseph and James Hudson and Charles Gomersall may of actually been transported.
Is anyone one else researching the other five men?

Researching GEORGE HEALD baptised 20 March, 1814 St John, Wakefield. Mother listed as Maria, no fathers name given on IGI index. Married HANNA HEY 12 August, 1833, Sandal Magna. Two daughters Maria baptised 8 July, 1834 at Rothwell and Christiana baptised 10/16 July 1836 at Rothwell. On George's convict papers it is stated he had a brother but not named.
GEORGE tried York Assizes 10 July, 1844 and transported for 20 years. Sent to Norfolk Island on "Hydrabad" and then to Van Diemens Land. Interested in any information on George Heald or what became of his first family. I have information on George Healds life and family after 1845 when he was transported.
