Samuel was 17 years old when convicted along with many others and also (I think) his twin brother, Frederick Furley, also 17 years old.

Frederick was onboard the same ship but was sent to VDL in 1824 for constantly absconding.

22/2/1832: COF

1830: Samuel married Mary Kirwin/Curben/Kirbin in Sydney.
