Note: Image kindly provided by Di Godwin.

Note: The headstone for George is inscribed that he was 87 years of age at the time of his death in 1890. These are the same details as contained in his death certificate. This would mean that George Garlick was born about 1803. It is recorded that George Godwin, the convict, was 22 years of age at the time of his arrival in NSW. This would have George being born about 1808. In addition, the death certificate for George Garlick, includes the information that he was 47 years of age at the time of his marriage in 1852. This would have him born about 1805. To further complicate this matter, the DOB included on the Ticket of Leave for George, the convict, was 1818.

"The information on this death certificate as given by the eldest son Nathaniel reflects several facts that sit uncomfortably with the convict George Godwin. Firstly… age of death has his birth date around 1803-4 in Malmesbury. This date is further back-up with his age of 47 years (if born post 26th May 1852) when he married in Kincumber on 26th May 1852."
