Tranported on Lord Lyndoch v.2. sprent a short time at Hyde Park Barracks, worked at Windsor. 1842 applied to marry Sarah Walsh,(free born immigrant) permission granted - no record of the marriage - she gave an age above that of consent. Mr. Patrick Walsh was not pleased. James lost his ticket of leave for disrespectful behaviour. He and Sarah were amongst the Pioneers of Port Phillip, in the mid 1840’s some children were baptised at St. Francis Cathedral in Melbourne. They settled in Allansford but he worked sharpening knives etc., in the area. They had many children, no crimes were committed by James - whilst the Original crime involved the alleged theft of : a silk scarf, handkerchiefs, 10 lb candy, five silver spoons, one silver punch ladle, one wheel of cheese, a knife and 8 pairs of shoes the crime had at least two participants. Mr. W, Proby was also sentenced for this crime, hopefully Benjamin Buckle near Hereford regained his property.
