Hello Gallindanne,
 Joseph Walsh arrived in NSW on board the Lady McNaghten Convict ship in 1835. He was tried in 1834 at Antrim and given a 7 year sentence for stealing clothes. He was single,a Catholic and his occupation was given as a porter. Date of birth 1816. This is from the Irish transportation registers. A goos website is Irish convicts to New South Wales. Also try the Australian website TROVE where you will find a 'treasure trove of digitised newspapers from all states in Australia from 1803 to about 1954. Often the papers had stories abput the convicts their assignments etc.
Hope this helps. Let me know if you need more information I can always do look ups for you at my local family history centre!

Many years later, someone reads an old listing.
I have a copy of the book "Quarantined! the 1837 Lady Macnaghten Immigrants".  Mary O'Connell - family is listed as Connell  - details on p.79 - note for her says born c 1820, Cork; note on same page says married 1840 to George Henry Barker.  The family had 9 children, only 7 arrived safely in Sydney - twin girls aged 1 died of measles.
George Henry Barker - not identified as a passenger;  only reference found was in the note for the O'Connell family.
Information for the notes relating to this family from NSW BDm, and Mrs E. Casey, Leonard Munday, Fr Brian Maher and Peter Mayberry.
