Crime: Shooting with intent to kill
Trial 16 July 1838
Martin Kelly was unwell in gaol but speaking no English his complaints had been overlooked and he was also suffering phthisis when sent on board. According to James Barr, he had appeared broken-hearted and became gradually weaker but he had not complained and would not have done so but for one of his messmates bringing him to the hospital. He was ‘a native of Tipperary, a Whiteboy, and had been engaged in several murders’. He died in Sydney hospital in 1840.
