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.
