Hi Roger,

Yes, you can order a copy of the relevant certificate through the following site:

http://www.maxi.com.au/devs/main.maxi?service=5&product=3

Although he was sentenced to 14 years in most cases the sentence was never served behind bars- a portion would have been then he would have obtained a ticket of leave and if still under sentence would have to obtain a "permission to marry certificate"

You may find this site of interest- National Archives of Australia:

http://www.naa.gov.au/Publications/fact_sheets/fs202.html

and this one:

This web site- Random Acts of Genealogy Kindness whould be able to help with record look ups in Tasmania:

I hope this helps
Good luck in your search
Regards
Gordon
