TRIED: Lent 1818 (see NSW Convict Ship Muster Rolls and Related Records, 1790-1849).

CRIME: Robbing the King’s Stores (see NSW Convict Ship Muster Rolls and Related Records, 1790-1849).

James Murphy, native of County Kerry, is not to be confused with another James Murphy, born 1784, who was tried at Wicklow and whose native place was Wexford (see Irish Convicts to New South Wales 1788-1849, by Peter Mayberry).

The ship’s muster roll of 1819 lists James Murphy as 30 years old, which is at odds with his date of birth on “Irish Convicts to NSW”.
