Benjamin Carrol was affiliated with the United Irishmen. He was arrested and tried in 1798 with many others, including:- John Austin, Brien Byrne, Richard Byrne, Christopher Coleman, Thomas Brady, Joseph Davis, Robert Doogan, Partrick Duffy, Thomas Ennis, Roger Gavin, John Hewitt, Robert Keane, John Kinkaid, John McDonald, Joseph McKinly, Charles McClean Ferdinand Maurant, Joseph Murray, Michael Mulhall, William Noble, Owen Nugent, John Reddington, William Russell and Robert Wilson

Following his trial in 1798, Benjamin Carrol was named in the Banishment Act and would become a voluntary exile. The Banishment Act (38 George III, c.78) pardoned named individuals concerned in a rebellion. Return to British dominions or passage to a country at war with Britain were prohibited.  There were approximately 100 Wicklow men transported after the rebellion of 1798. Another 500 from other counties would also join them in Australia.
