John Flannery (aged 26) was convicted in County Westmeath on the 7th March 1837. He was also
sentenced to seven years labour, and transported to Australia aboard the "Calcutta" on the 18th April 1837.
He subsequently obtained a certificate of freedom on 18th March 1845 (thus served eight years labour).

Denis Flannery obtained a certificate of freedom on 14th June 1831. He was transported aboard
the "Prince Regent" in 1824 (thus served seven years labour).
Here is an unusual case: Thomas Flannery obtained a certificate of freedom on 6th March 1839. He
had been transported aboard the "Clorinda" in 1835. The records show that he was "re-transported" from Port Adelaide
aboard the "Dorset" in 1840. It is possible that his earlier release was a clerical error, since records were poorly
kept, chiefly because the legal paperwork often took many years to find its way out to the penal settlements.

James Flannery was convicted in Baltinglass, County Wicklow as a United Irishman circa 1798. He was sentenced
for life, and transported to Australia aboard the "Atlas II" in 1802.
