Now you're mixing up two things.
The liner notes to Willy Scott's 1968 Topic album The Shepherd's Song state: "Raeburn was a baker, unjustly accused of theft and banished for life to Botany Bay, c.1840. However, the Glasgow policeman and folk song enthusiast, Supt. John Ord, had all the criminal records searched from 1833 on, without finding trace of Raeburn’s conviction."
Greentrax records was founded in 1986 by former police inspector Ian Green.
