Prisoners transported on the Aurora were convicted in counties throughout England - Warwick, Cambridge, Southampton, Middlesex Lancaster, Suffolk, Sussex, Norfolk, Essex, Somerset, York, Northampton, Leicester, Chester, Surrey, London, Salop and Wiltshire. None of the prisoners of the Aurora were convicted in Scotland. Three men were court-martialed at Guernsey. 
Many, even the young boys, were held on the Hardy hulk at Portsmouth to await transportation. They were transferred from the hulk to the Aurora on 26th June.
The guard consisted of Major Delisle, Lieut. Greetham/Grantham, 1 soldier and 2 boys of the 4th regiment and 27 rank and file of the 21st Fusiliers. Four females and four children together with a servant also came steerage.

The convicts were mustered on board on 7th November 1833 where details such as age, education, religion, family, native place, trade, offence, when and where tried, physical description, sentence and prior convictions were recorded.

The troops went on shore on 6th November and marched to Head Quarters preceded by the Highland Piper. 
The men were landed on Thursday 21st November 1833 and taken to Hyde Park Barracks where they were assigned for service.

1) Alexander Stewart was also surgeon on the convict ships America in 1829 and Southworth in 1830 (VDL).
2) One of the prisoners who arrived on the Aurora was Thomas Homer. In 1841 he was committed for trial for the murder of his overseer James Stone at New England. He was taken to Sydney for trial and then to Newcastle Gaol where he was executed in 1842.
3) The Australian published the following cryptic article on the 11th November which probably referred to Robert Byers...By the Aurora, a certain commission agent, who cut a very pretty figure in the witness box of the Supreme Court of this Colony some two years since, has arrived. The rudiments of learning that he had imbibed in this Colony were insufficient to protect him against the law reforms at home, and he has therefore been sent out to complete his education in the school where it was commenced.
