Gore, George (c. 1756–?)

George Gore (c.1756- ) was a marine in the 20th (Portsmouth) Company when he arrived at Sydney aboard the Supply in January 1788 as part of the First Fleet. He was discharged to headquarters on 20 May 1789 at Port Jackson. On 6 April 1792 he joined the New South Wales Corps and received 25 acres of land at the Field of Mars in March 1795 which he sold to Captain John Macarthur.

Gore was sent to Norfolk Island on the Supply with the NSW Corps in October 1795. He took his discharge in April 1797 and almost immediately rejoined the corps, serving under Captain George Johnston. He returned to England on the Glatton in May 1803 as a reduced soldier, with 28 years of service.
