Bartholomew Carty, aged 34, convict; case number 7; disease or hurt, catarrhus. Put on sick list, 9 July 1842. Died 17 July 1842.

Surgeon’s general remarks. 250 convicts were embarked at Portsmouth on 17 March 1842. Their general condition was favourable for the voyage and the state of their health tolerably good. With one exception, the case of pulmonary catarrh (case 7)

Bartholomew Carty (not Carty, your records have a typo) was born in Clinskeet, Dublin, Ireland.

He entered into the Canada, British Regimental Registers of Service, 7 Jun 1825, Unit: 88th Foot Soldiers, 2nd Battalion

He arrived on the York, Gosport, convicted 21 Aug 1841 in Kingston, Canada for Desertion.  (The person writing his name on this record misspelled his name as well, but I am positive it is Carty.)

Van Diemen’s Land records (now Tasmanian Archives) has Bartholomew CARTHY.  As he died at sea during the voyage, no other details are recorded on his Conduct Record (link above in Source reference). The same on his ‘Description List’ and ‘Indent’.
The ‘Candahar’ arrived at VDL on 21st July 1842, so Bartholomew died only a few days prior.

His name is ABSOLUTELY Bartholomew Carty.  It was/STILL is common to mistype this last name.  Just because his name was recorded once INCORRECTLY, and then AGAIN in error does not make it correct.

He was sentenced for Desertion and it was from the courts that his name was somehow modified. Either way…his name is Carty
