family history is here:
(as at June 2013)
Married Mary Julia Kelliher (also a convict) on 6 Mar 1839. Both died young. My paternal grandmother is one of their offspring: Emily Munton born 1844

He is probably a 2nd great grandfather to me through his relationship with Mary Julia Kelliher.
There’s also the possibility that the Alfred mentioned here is Alfred Thirkettle, per John Barry 1836.
