1824, 2 December: Andrew MAGUIRE applies from Cumberland, New South Wales, for a replacement Ticket of Leave, having lost the original which he obtained “about the month of October 1823… which Ticket I generally kept in my jacket pocket… On Saturday last while working in a wood boat belonging to Edward Riley Esq, being overtaken by a squall which swamped the boat, my jacket was lost and also my Ticket of Leave. I further swear that I have not sold or disposed of the said Ticket in any improper manner whatsoever.” Signed with his mark (see NSW, Australia, Convict Records, 1810-1891; Certificates of Freedom; Applications for Colonial Certificates of Freedom, 1822-1825).

1824, 2 December: Andrew MAGUIRE is issued with a replacement Ticket of Leave #522/1456 (the original being lost in the circumstances described above). This document gives his date of birth as 1800. He is 5’3½” with a ruddy complexion, dark brown hair and dark eyes (see NSW, Australia, Tickets of Leave, 1810-1869;Register of tickets of leave, 1824-1827).

1825, 7 July: Andrew MAGUIRE – Certificate of Freedom #24/3982 – convicted Dublin County, July 1818, 7 years; native place Co Dublin; stable man; 27, 5’3½ ”, dark ruddy complexion, black hair, dark hazel eyes. Remarks: Ticket of Leave No 552/1456 now delivered up and cancelled (see NSW, Australia, Certificates of Freedom, 1810-1814, 1827-1867).

1829, 13 July: Andrew MAGUIRE – Certificate of Freedom #29/671 – same personal details as above. Notation: “Torn up 5 October 1830 on its receipt from John Goulding per Atlas (4) reporting that Maguire was drowned about 10 weeks ago in Mr Goulding’s boat.”

Note: No location of his death is given; nor is it clear on what date the report/letter, from Mr Goulding, was actually written. For example, the newspaper report below about a drowning could be about Andrew MAGUIRE. Given that there is conjecture about the name of the dead man, it’s possible the choices listed for his first name are not correct either.

1829, 19 November: From the Sydney Gazette, p2: “Coroner’s Inquest: An Inquest was held at Windsor, on Thursday last, the 12th instant, on the body of a man whose name is at present unknown. The verdict was — ‘That the deceased (name unknown) on the afternoon of Wednesday, the 11th instant, at Windsor, in the county of Cumberland, between four and six o’clock, in attempting to cross at the mouth of Rickerby’s Creek, was accidentally drowned.” It is conjectured that the name of the deceased was either John Mcllvogue or Patrick Maguire, but nothing like proof has yet been obtained.”
