2 James Fitzsimmons on this ship.

This James Fitzsimmons was 26 years old and transported for “Malicious Assault”.  He was single and his native place was Monaghan.

James could read, was 5’6 1/4” tall, RC, sallow complexion, brown hair, hazel eyes.

There was a COF on 5/11/1840, but I can’t tell for which one.
