Patrick Fahey is on WikiTree. Patrick Fahey (abt.1810-abt.1880) Could he be linked? He was a pensioner guard. The Bio Dict of WA reports that his wife accompanied him but I can't find her on any passenger lists. Is there any way to verify this?

Hi Judy, I have added a the link thank you. I would check the enrolled pensioner force website. I will find the link for you.

Richard McCorry arrived with his wife Mary and several children which are not accounted for in the list of passengers, is there anywhere I can obtain an official list of passengers for the Belgravia?

Belgravia convict # 9040 William Wheat was seventeen, single, able to read and write imperfectly and a potter. He was first placed in Milbank Prison and then in December 1865 on the Register at Portland, Dorset and in March 1866 is collected for Transportation on the Belgravia to Australia. The Belgravia arrived in Fremantle 4th July 1866 after a voyage of eighty eight days. William was recorded as aged twenty, five foot ten inches tall, with brown hair, hazel eyes, round visage, of fair complexion, middling stout appearance, slightly pock pitted with scars on both knees, and his next of kin was recorded as father Thomas, carter of Lambton (=Longton) Stoke upon Trent. The final prison records show William’s early demise: Drowned, Swan River 18th October 1866. This is recorded in the 31st October edition of the Inquirer and Commercial Newspaper, Perth: FATAL ACCIDENT- A few days since, when one of the Government boats was passing the island at the Causeway flats, one of the crew, a probation prisoner named Wheat, who was pushing the boat along with an oar, lost his balance and fell overboard. The helmsman, another probationer, named Carlos, immediately jumped in after him, but owing to his heavy clothing and the muddy state of the water, was unable to recover him. The body has since been recovered and an inquest held, at which a verdict of accidental death was recorded. The jury having brought the praiseworthy conduct of Carlos to the notice of the Comptroller general, the prisoner has had a portion of his sentence remitted. William Wheat was buried at East Perth cemetery, he had no headstone.
