Patrick HEFFERNAN was transported to New South Wales on the Backwell in 1835.  He received a Ticket of Leave in 1843, and was allowed to remain in the (NSW) district of Yass.  It shows he was tried at Tipperary, Ireland.

In 1848 Patrick received a Conditional Pardon.

His trial was 24 March 1835 at Tipperary and he received a Life Sentence.

"Patrick Heffernan was sentenced along with James Boney (Booney), Denis Carey, James Corcoran, Pierce Cantwell, James Heffernan, William Delaney, Richard Stapleton and James Cantwell. All but Delaney and Stapleton arrived on the same ship"

Thank you JM
Is there a way I can access court records to find out about the trial and the circumstances of the crime?

Hi Giblet and Jamjar -
I am new to this and astonished at the response already - can I access the material you have about Constable Feeley
