The convict indentures state that Robert Finn was 18 years old.  He could neither read nor write; religion Roman Catholic; status single and a native of Dublin.  He was an file cutter’s boy. (Please note that there is no code for this in occupation so I selected file cutter.) Robert was convicted on 7 October 836 at Dublin City of picking pockets and sentenced to 7 years.  He had one prior conviction and served 6 months.  Physical attributes: Height 5 feet 2 3/4 inches; complexion dark pale and freckled; hair brown and eyes grey. He had a cost inward in right eye. Transport number 109.  Prisoner number 36-1912.
Received Certificate of freedom in 1843 (number 43/1077).
