From the nsw bdm; Richard Jaycock, died 1838, age 27.

From the Australian Cemeteries website: Deaths on Norfold Island - records the death of a Richard Jaycock, on the 24/7/1838 - died by a fall of earth, aged 20.

Perhaps they are the same person, I could find no reference of his court case or he being sent to N.I.
