Benjamin Alcock was tried in Dublin in 1838 and found guilty of the "felony of lead". He received a sentence of seven years transportation. The court records stated that Benjamin's mother lived at No 3 Meath Market, off Earl Street, in Dublin City..
No record has been found of a convict called Benjamin Alcock arriving in Australia. It is possible he was transported elsewhere (eg Caribbean) or was not sent abroad at all.
