Barnabus was tried on 31/7/1819 - he departed from England so he must have been sent back there for transportation.

There is nothing listed for Barnabus on the NSW Gov. Convict Records.

At the age of 39 (C1833)he was assigned to John Palmer in the Queanbeyan district as a ‘Stockmaster’.

No other records found of him.
