22/8/1829 Hobart Town Courier:
An inquest was held at Richmond last week on the body of Terence Dogherty, the unfortunate man whom we mentioned last week as having been killed by the blacks. Dogherty rented a small hut with a man named Garretty under the Brown mountain, and had been attacked while alone at his hut, early in the day by the blacks. His body was found dreadfully wounded lying at the door.

Terence was the brother of Owen Doherty - also on board the Bencoolen and also sent to VDL per ‘Admiral Cockburn.
Terence died without a will and on 27/8/1834 all his property etc., was committed to Owen Dogherty, his brother.
