John Carr was transported as an Exile. He had spent 2 1/2 years in prison and then chose transportation, which meant he would receive a TOL almost immediately.
John arrived in Sydney on 24/12/1849. The Adelaide arrived in Hobart on 29/11/1849 and disembarked 40 convicts, it then went on to Port Phillip, but was refused entry and so continued to Sydney.
1850: TOL Mudgee.
24/4/1856: John had a daughter, Catherine. The mother was Ann James nee Malone. They were not married as John had a wife and daughters left behind at Norfolk.
