Richard’s father Jeremiah Daley died on the hulk Justitia awaiting transportation. He was in the 31st of Foot and 3rd Royal Veterans which is why Richard was born on Guernsey in the Channel Islands.
Richard’s two older brothers John and Patrick were both transported to Tasmania on the Susan2 in 1842.
Richard may have married a widow Elizabeth Woods on 22 January 1973 in Launceston. There don’t appear to have been any children from that marriage.
Richard continued to offend after he gained his freedom in 1852. He spent a further 6 months and another 3 years in Campbell Street Gaol before being released on 7 March 1885.
Between 1886 and 1890 Richard was admitted to NTCI on at least five occasions.
He died on 31 December 1890 at NTCI and was buried in a pauper’s grave at Cornelian Bay.
