Prison Hulk ship Prudentia moored at Woolwich, received 18 June 1806, Offence: Desertion, transferred for transportation 6 Dec.1806
Convict Musters 1825, James Clee, Est. birth year abt 1795, Employment: Landholder Appin
Note: Problem with DOB: if born 1775 and DOD is correct at 1892 that makes him 117 years old. Muster shows born 1795 which may seem more reasonable
