Cornelius was transported with his father-in-law, Dennis Gleeson, and his son William Gleeson, all convicted of Manslaughter and all on board Clyde.

Dennis and William were at Port Macquarie and Cornelius in Braidwood, when they got TOL’s they all made their way to Victoria and were in the Warrnambool/Port Fairy/Koroit areas.

Cornelius’s wife and family came to Victoria as well.  The Gleeson and Bourke families were all well educated and soon became established in Victoria.

No date of death found for Cornelius.
