George Gregory (1811–1876)

George Gregory travelled with his convict mother and siblings to Sydney aboard the Broxbornebury in 1814. His father came free the following year. Following his mother's death in 1819 and his father's return to England, George and his two brothers were placed in the Male Orphan School. George was apprenticed as a shoemaker. He left the orphanage in November 1826.

By 1828 he was living with his older brothers Edward and Charles in Castlereagh St, Sydney.
