Research This man had been included as a Pyrenees I convict in several places including the Convicts in Western Australia Book but the evidence is pretty clear that he was a colonial prisoner. Refer to his links file. The Character Book entry has his trial taking place in Perth, 4 months after the arrival of the Pyrenees. He was not on the Transport Register for the Pyrenees and his entry in Cons 1156 R10 Reconvicted Prisoners Register records the ship on which he arrived as "Colonial".
