John Barry was convicted of sheep stealing in March 1836 and sentenced to Transportation for Life.
John Barry was assigned to J. A. Curtoys and John Bailey of Sydney when he first arrived in Sydney on 13th November 1836.
He was later sent to Queanbeyan where he obtained a Conditional Pardon in 1847?.

John Barry was from Knocknamanagh Cork Ireland. He was convicted in the Spring Assizes in 1836.
John arrived in Australia on the 13th November 1836 he was 24 years old. His brother David was 19.
John was now prisoner 36/2511.
John was billeted to J. A. Curtoys of Sydney.
John ended up in the region of Queanbeyan where he served his time. Who he was working for I don’t know as I do not have that information.
John received his Ticket of Leave No 44/2994 on 11th December 1844.
John received his (Conditional??) Passport No 45/249 on the 14th March 1845.
From this point in time he becomes a ghost.
He is not the husband of Lucy Pendergast, (I have spoken to descendants of Lucy and John).
I ruled out John Barry (Ref. No1866/6832) who died in Tumut because of dates. They just don’t add up.
And lastly (Ref. No 1861/3112) this John married Elizabeth Humphrey in Woolongong. There is not enough information to rule this one in or out. But the marriage was in 1861 which would have made our John 49 years old.
