Terence Clancy was 26 years old when convicted along with his wife, Mary Lochrie (George Hibbert 1834) and her father James Lochrie (Lady Nugent 1834) for uttering a forged note.

Terence and Mary had 2 male and 1 female children who arrived with Mary, then in 1835/6 they had a son John.

Terence had scurvy as per the sick list of the Bengal Merchant, but was cured.

Found no other records of Terence, he was not listed on the NSW Gov. Records and no date of death on the NSW BDM.
