Research CWA has the 1909 Claremont death. Karrakatta has him aged 70 which means a possible error of approx 8 years. The 1831 birth date looks pretty solid based on the census and his age at Millbank. A descendant of James Richard Day who died 1922 in Tenterfield NSW aged 79 has posted on the Australian Convict Index claiming #3750 as his ancestor. Most of the trees on Ancestry have his birth date around 1843 which agrees with the death age and does not support him being #3750 and nor do most of the trees.

We are staying with the Claremont death for the time being but are open to reviewing further evidence.
