Garland - County Monaghan

I'm searching for Irish genealogical connections to Patrick Garland (b. circa 1825) (my great great grandfather).

Details are scant, however Patrick was transported to Tasmania (Van Diemen's Land) in March 1849. A summary of information I do have appears below:


Police no.: 5516G

Where:        Monaghan assizes
When:        5 Mar 1849
For:         Highway robbery (£7 7s 6d)
Sentence:    7 years transportation

Ship:        London (2) (denotes second voyage)
Sailed on:    20 Dec 1850
Sailed from:    Dublin
Destination:    Hobart Town
Master:     J. Sceales
Arrived:    19 Mar 1851

Occupation at the time of his trial: mat maker

His mother's name was possibly Mary.

His siblings were possibly: Michael, Francis, Rose, Ann, Margaret and Bridget.

Many thanks

  • Dear Roger,

    Found one record that could be a match

    Baptism of Patrick Gartland on the 23 May 1824 in Kilskyre County Meath.

    Parents James Gartland and Bridget Reilly.


    Mary baptised 1826, Matthew 1820, Bridget 1823, Ann 1826 and 6 more but no Michael, Francis, Rose or Margaret

    Kind Regards,

    Anne Marie
