Isaac Bagnall was my 3rd Great Grand Uncle who according to a newspaper article written about this case, Isaac was of previous good character and had it not been for good character references he would have received 14 years instead of 7 years. I’m only sad that there is no more information as to what happened to him on his release.
I only hope he had a good and honest life wherever he went.

Isaac Bagnall is not listed on the NSW Gov. Convict records, also not VDL records or anywhere else.

The only thing I found was ‘Unclaimed Letters’ at the Post Office notices on 19/6/1839 and 1/4/1840.

Not listed on the ‘Sick List’ of the Moffatt - so he didn’t die on board.  Could it be that he was pardoned before the voyage began?????
