Some records have this Thomas Kelly as the one who was transported first on the Chapman 1817 and then on the Daphne 1819 but I can’t link them, he seems to be a totally different one, this one’s native place was Limerick and the other one was tried at Dublin with his brother Bernard.

This Thomas Kelly was 23 years old on arrival in VDL and was born in Limerick County, Ireland.

At the time of committing this Offence he was a Soldier in 34th Regt at Chatham, and was once imprisoned by sentence of Court Martial.

Thomas was transported for ‘Stabbing James Turner coming home from a Fair, he was drunk - he was ill 4 days - is now alive - I did not do it’, once punished in the Regt 30 days for being absent.

Thomas was 5’8”, fair complexion brown hair, grey eyes, slightly pockpitted, single.

18/10/1846: Thomas died at the Hobart Hospital.
