Patrick Alcock was imprisoned in Bridewell and Smithfield prisons in Dublin in 1848 and tried in Dublin in 1849 and found guilty of the crime of felonious attack ("Assault With Intent To Do Grievous Bodily Harm"). He received a sentence of fifteen years transportation and was allocated to the ship Pestonjee Bomanjee. He was subsequently ordered to be discharged and a note, dated 15 June 1855, said the "file was missing". The prison records stated he was 28 years old at the time of his entry into the system and he came from Dublin City.
At present no record has been found of Patrick Alcock being transported to Australia.
