John AGER, born 1830, unmarried, labourer, was sentenced to life for manslaughter at Chelmsford Assizes on 15 July 1850.

John AGER is described as 5’4 ¾”, dark brown hair, grey eyes, with a long face, fresh complexion, and of slight build. He had a mole on his left arm, and a scar on his left hand.

2/12/1854: Ticket of leave
10/2/1859:  Conditional Pardon

I found a death on the WA BDM for John Ager age 72 died 1899 which is probably him.
Also found a marriage to Molly Ann, an aboriginal in Bunbury in 1873. No children listed.
