James Murphy was tried at Exeter, Devon on 11 August 1783 for assault and highway robbery with a value of 41 shillings. He was sentenced to transportation for 7 years having been originally sentenced to death, and left England on the Friendship aged about 44 at that time (May 1787). His occupation was listed as shoemaker. He died in 1804.
Guilty of return from transport following the Mercury mutiny.Report from Dunkirk hulk was “troublesome at times”.
