There is nothing to indicate if they were all involved in the same offence

According to the record for Nottingham Lent Assizes 1821, they were all sentenced to Death, but there is an R after it - possibly Reprieved?

A Coroner's Jury assembled at the Bricklayers' Arms, on view of the body of Plumb, the bush-ranger, who had died in the Colonial Hospital of wounds received during his recent conflict with Allan and his party-when after brief deliberation, a ver- dict was returned of -Justifiable Homicide.
