Charles Cooke was 21 years old on arrival in WA and was transported for “Shooting with intent to injure”.

Charles was illiterate, protestant, single, 5’5” tall, brown hair, hazel eyes, fresh complexion, middling stout, crucifix right arm, woman left arm, ring third finger left hand.

27/6/1857: TOL
8/5/1860: COF Perth.

Not sure about the death date, Charles Cooke per “Racehorse 1865” died in 1930 in WA., and from his birth date it would make this Charles Cooke 96 years old - possible but will have to search further.
