“TRIALS AT THE THOLSEL
“The Quarter Sessions commenced at the Tholsel, before Dennis George, Esq, on Thursday last, at which the following persons were tried, viz:
“Richard Powell for a highway robbery on James Cassidy – sentenced to be executed on Saturday, the 4th of February next.”
Obviously, his sentence was respited from a capital conviction to Life.
He is recorded on the indent for the ship “Sugar Cane”. however, it is recorded in pencil “dead”. This may mean he died on the ship.
