John Barry was 46 years old on arrival in NSW and was born in Kilblain, Ireland.
No crime listed.

Colonial Secretary:
BARRY, John. Per “Daphne”, 1819
1819 Sep 28: On list of convicts disembarked from the “Daphne” and forwarded to Windsor; for the Windsor Road (Reel 6006; 4/3500 p.275)
1822 Jun 2: On list of prisoners assigned (Fiche 3290; 4/4570D p.7)
1822 Jun 6: Convict assigned to Joseph Archer of Port Dalrymple. Details from indent of transmitted to Lieutenant Governor Sorell (Reel 6009; 4/3505 p.391)
June 1822: John arrived in VDL per ‘Castle Forbes’
John was then described as 50 years old, a farm labourer, 5’5 ½” tall, brown to grey hair, grey eyes.

Here it gets a little confusing as there was a John Barry who arrived on the ‘Castle Forbes’ in 1820, it landed 4 convicts in NSW and 136 landed in VDL – he was also tried at Cork but got a life sentence and it seems these two prisoners are mixed together as it says on LINC that ”HE” arrived per ‘Daphne’ to NSW.
