Hi Susie
Please know, I am not doubting your info (re the ship name), just asking to clarify... and hoping to help.

Not that my knowledge is great, but I have never heard of the MC Sloop.... Generally MC refers to something like Maritime Commission.... it would describe either the owner, the type of ship... Like SS stands for STEAMSHIP.... HMS means Her/His Majesty's Ship....

I thought the word sloop referred to the sails on a ship, the specific arrangement of the sails... and that can include the sails arrangement for gun ships.

Would you please upload a link so we can see the actual record? 

I have tried to find him in Australia, but can't seem to locate him... where was he convicted please?  England, Ireland, Scotland.... I can't see him on the Old Bailey records of the Irish transportation records, so will need more info first.

Did he go to Newcastle, or was that just on the transportation document?  Its possible he did go to Newcastle, but not get off the ship.... and went to Tassie.


HMC Sloop Sally (HM Colonial sloop?)
