John was sentences to 14 years transportation and spent a few months on the hulk Warrior before transportation to Van Diemen's Land in 1841. John escaped from a working party and was lucky not to have been shot before being recaptured. George Ogle would have been just a baby at this time, and his mother would have gone to work while the other children were sent to the workhouse in Alnwick. Rosannah somehow found the means to bring the children to Tasmania in 1849. In 1850 the family went to Port Fairy, then known as Belfast.
