Could be a brother George. I read it as Gor_e

There is a Simon Ivings sent to NSW, arrived 1821 for 14 years.. which matches a Simon Evans sentenced to 14 yrs transportation at Surrey january 1821 assizes, might be worth keeping him in mind..

Another good find, although I'm not convinced they are the same person.

FMP has a record which says that in April 1826* the Simon Evans who was convicted Jan 1821 at the Old Bailey to 14 years for handling stolen goods received a mitigation to 7 years but could not be given a free pardon until he had served 7 years. It states 'his conduct has certainly been exemplary and has been employed in teaching shoemaking which from close confinement may in a slight degree have affected his health"

There is also a letter from July 1826 and another dated August 1826 headed Downing Street confirming that he was confined to the convict ship (hulk) Leviathan.

* Ancestry has a record in the record set UK, Prison Hulk Registers and Letter Books, 1802-1849 (Leviathan, image 29 of 152) for a Samuel Evans which confirms the conviction as Jan 1821, Old Bailey, and says he was received onto the Leviathan from Newgate on 23 Jan 1821, aged 39 & that his sentence was commuted to 7 years on 24 May 1825, and he received a free pardon 13 January 1827.

FMP also has a record of Samuel Evans in Newgate awaiting trial, which confirms him as 39 & a shoemaker. Convicted 12 Jan 1821. Old Bailey Online also has a brief record.

The Simon Ivings sent to NSW was said to be on the Adamant, so perhaps he is the 'missing' Simon :/

There's a good change then that Simon Evans is the one on the census with wife Jane.

I had an ancestor on a hulk, Fortitude. Set fire to some cottages and sentenced to death then changed to transportation. Died of typhoid on the hulk.
