Hi , I have a Stephen Deegan transported in 1829 , but I am unable to find any record of his death I wonder if anyone can help with this, it is possible he returned to Ireland or may have remained in Australia.
            With thanks , Diarmuid.

On 4th April 1833 the Sydney Gazette reported that Stephen Deegan, convict, assigned to Rev John Vincent, Sydney, as a farm servant.

11th May 1838 his Certificate of Freedom (35/410) was issued.

He married free settler Ellen Kane on 7th January 1841 at Sydney, they had 4 children between 1841-1848.
No record has been found as to Stephen’s death, it is assumed that he died or left the Colony between 1848-1850, as Ellen married another convict, Thomas Lynch (‘Waterloo’ 1836) in 1851.

Once again thank you for trying to help me .

 noxas:  have you searched for where the 4 children were if he is on their marriage records etc...was he living with one of them as sometime searching for another name can help and passenger ship lists or death between 1848-1850 which narrows down your search
