The death of Patrick Carr on Norfolk Island in January 1832 is problematic despite it being
clearly noted on his shipping indent. Either it is a large coincidence, or the entry has been confused
with Matthew Carr (Asia, 1822) who also died on Norfolk Island in January 1832. Matthew’s death
appears in the convict death registers but Patrick’s does not. Why the inconsistency for two convict
deaths in the same establishment in the same month? It is possible that Patrick Carr died at another
time and/or in another place.
