There is some confusion about the first name of this convict. The Warrants of the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland state this convict name as Daniel Gleeson and the Australia Convict Indentures as Thomas Gleeson. The transport number is 48 for both entries. Could not find that this convict had received a ticket of leave or conditional/absolute pardon under either name. The name for this entry is taken from the Convict Indentures 1829.
