1/12/1835 Sheffield Iris Yorkshire, England:
William Lee, Henry Whitehead, and Alfred Revill, charged with robbing a man named Thomas Johnson of his watch, in a yard in Holly Street.

Henry Whitehead was also on board the Lady Nugent. No ship found for William Lee.

Alfred Revill/e was lised as being 24 years old on arrival in VDL - he was born in Sheffield.

Gaol Report: character &c. very bad, a drunken idle profligate travelling thief, once convicted, once impd.

Stated this Offence: Robbing a man of his watch at N.P. Sheffield, once for assault 1 month, once acquitted for a watch, Brother Charles at Sydney transported 6 years ago last October for 7 years for House breaking.
(Brother Charles Revill arrived NSW per ‘Exmouth’ 1831).

Alfred was 5’8½” tall, brown complexion, dark brown hair, grey eyes, 2 scars near left wrist, scar right cheek, single.

3/3/1841: TOL

30/9/1841: Permission to marry Catherine Lyons (Nautilus 1838). Listed as Revill.

13/12/1841: Married at Hobart - Alfred was 29, had TOL, a labourer, listed as Revill - Catherine was 20, a convict.
14/2/1842: Catherine born Hobart - died 30/3/1843
29/3/1843: Female Revill born Hobart (??Ellen)
12/9/1844: Charles Revill born Hobart - died 12/2/1868 whilst whaling.

1843: Free Certificate.

Presumably went to NSW to join his brothers Charles and Benjamin (Listed as Revell who was on board the ‘Earl Grey 1838), who had been transported to NSW - Catherine did not go with him.
