Name: John Clegg Age: 27 Date of Conviction: 23 Mar 1816 Place of Conviction: Lancaster Estimated birth year: abt 1789 Vessel: Shipley Port of Arrival: Sydney Date of Arrival: 24 Apr 1817 Ticket of Leave: Yes

Note: The death reference for John includes the information that he was 40 years of age at the time of his death in 1834. This would calculate with him having been born about 1794. Yet his convict records state that he was 27 years of age in 1816. This would have him born about 1789.
