Several news items, from around 1828  mention Captain Alexander DUTHIE as master of Bengal Merchant.
Mrs DUTHIE is also mentioned as being on board.

However, her given name was not Bridget.

Married on the third instant at St Davidís Church by RevW Bedford, Alexander Duthie Esq, commander of the ship Bengal Merchant, to Sarah Wilkins, eldest daughter of R W Giblin esq, Master of the Kingís Orphan School, Van Diemenís Land.
Sat 27 Sept 1828. Hobart Town Courier

Birth. At sea on board the Bengal merchant, Capt Alexander DUTHIE, ten days previous to the shipís arrival in the English Channel, Mrs DUTHIE , daughter of Mr Giblin, master of Kingís male orphan school of this place, of a son.
1st May 1830. Hobart Town Courier

Sue, thatís interesting.  It seems the ĎBengal Merchantí dropped convicts at VDL and then continued to Sydney.  Perhaps there were other passengers on board from VDL to Sydney including Bridget DUFFY and Iím getting my wires crossed with the Captains wife.... Iím trying to give the online tree the benefit of the doubt.

I still donít think the years fit though.  Will be interesting to see what JM comes back with.

Capt A. DUTHIE died 1848 at Tas

I am certain the story about the Captain's wife in not correct.

Charles WOOLFORD Ė military rank and file in NSW and VDL

and
http://freepages.rootsweb.com/~garter1/history/surnames39th.htm   surnames of those who stayed in Australia Ö. Includes Charles WOOLFORD Ö
and
http://members.pcug.org.au/~pdownes/keenan/keenan_reg_history.htm  mentions a book written in 1853 re the 39th regiment of foot Ö
and
my offline resource gives :
Charles WOOLFORD originally in the 3rd regiment of foot, then discharged after the end of the Napoleonic wars Ö then re enlisted in Ireland into 39th Regiment, 10th Company .  *(see Michaeel Keenan bio material above) Ö  enlisted for 14 years at Buttevant, Cork, Ireland in March 1825.  Came to NSW in 1827, sent as garrison to Emu Plains NSW March 1828 then Parramatta August 1828 then Port Macquarie September 1828, and discharged with gratuity 30 June 1832.    Source Australian Joint Copying Project, Pay ListsÖ 
Likely you can check for images of original at: https://www.nla.gov.au/research-guides/australian-joint-copying-project/part-4-war-office-wo  and
http://nla.gov.au/nla.obj-397303950/view?partId=nla.obj-397311955#page/n0/mode/1up

I am still to do any looking up further for info from the military clues above, particularly in case he was in TasmaniaÖ  but err,  I need to unpack .....  and organise some real life stuffs ....

The struck through text should read:

Charles WOOLFORD originally in the 3rd regiment of foot, then discharged after the end of the Napoleonic wars Ö then re enlisted in Ireland  and came to NSW with the 3rd Regiment (who relieved the 48th)  *(see Michaeel Keenan bio material above) Ö  so he had re- enlisted for 14 years at Buttevant, Cork, in  Ireland in March 1822.  Came to NSW in 1827, and transferred into the 39th Regiment when that regiment relieved the 3rd.  Then sent as garrison to Emu Plains NSW March 1828 then Parramatta August 1828 then Port Macquarie September 1828, and discharged with gratuity 30 June 1832.    Source Australian Joint Copying Project, Pay ListsÖ  [/s]

Sorry for the confusion.
