A ticket of Leave was granted to convicts for good behaviour and was like a licence or bail and they were free to work within a designated area ( ? Deniliquin) and start a new life in Aus before the end of their sentence. My understanding of a conditional pardon was they could live anywhere in Aus but not return home. Great majority of convicts would not have the financial means to travel overseas (although some did return home)
Ancestry has dates from 1830-5 for him on the Phoenix Hulk ( a prison hulk in Port Jackson)

Thanks. I had seen that and it gives a good description of his tattoos that I hadn't found before. As a "missing friends" article, does that mean he's been in Australia up to 1879? Or could it mean he's left and come back - the ticket to leave passport feels like a definite intention to leave the country...

It is NOT a ticket to leave passport.  It IS a ticket of leave passport.  He has permission to move between two districts within the one colony  while he continues to serve out his sentence.  So he is not in a gaol, and he is assigned to a master who may have more than one place where he wants your chap to work, or he may be lent to another master to do seasonal work.... he is a trusted person,  abit like parole.

Oops,  I will delete some of my words.   I did not get red warning,  Sorry Shume for duplicating.   ..... I am on e reader.... my fault.   :-[  :-[  :-[

Ah, I see. That makes sense - this is my first family member who has ended up outside of Scotland or Ireland so I'm learning the terminology. Thanks for the clarification.

Wellwood’s ticket of leave passport (April 1847) allowed him “ to proceed to any part of the colony in the service of Mr. J J Galloway surveyor for 12 months.”

I hadn't been able to find that much detail except his ticket of leave passport was given on the recommendation of "Mr Labato".

Up to that point he wasn't a particularly well-behaved prisoner and committed several crimes during his time as a convict:

I noticed he was a “carter” when first sentenced in Scotland. The man who died in Deniliquin was also a carrier - another term for a carter.
His NSW marriage or death records may give you more info.

Hi JM,    can you suggest which record would give the most detailed information - his marriage in 1862 or his death in 1876?

Yes,  and sadly, scant on either is the likely option.

The 1862 marriage ought to have first hand details of his origins and his parents names, BUT most likely it won't (the clergy were in a huge dispute about just how much info to share with the secular authority that was NSW Reg General's office - some of the employees in that office were not the same denomination as the clergy records they were registering -  so a C of E clergy did not want a RC clerk in the Reg Gen's office to process and vice versa ... four decades that dispute raged ie from 1856 commencement of civil registration to mid 1890s.)
 
So I am waiting on my offline team - my ancient rellies-  to phone me with their thoughts (retired Clergy, retired archivists and retired NSW BDM senior officers)...   The 1876 d.c. does NOT make good sense to me, as the NSW State Archives has the dod as 7 August 1877, if 1877 is correct, then the d.c. 1876 is not his or ... 'vice versa'.  BUT we are ONLY looking at indexes ... so there may be typographical errors...  hence my comment about waiting ... perhaps a day or so ... these ancient rellies are in regional NSW and umm... may be concerned for current Covid lockdowns and perhaps are busy checking on each other re masks, essential supplies etc.   :)  :)   so umm perhaps a day or so :D  :D before I give a proper answer.  ;D  ;D   ...  My husband and I had driven to them all and loaded up their pantries, freezers etc, with as much as possible weeks ago, but likely those supplies are rapidly diminishing..
