THE WAVERLEY.-Among the convicts
arrived by the Waverley is Carrick, the
Roman Catholic Monk, whose trial and
conviction on a charge of torturing a
child to death created a strong excitement
in Ireland some eight or nine months
since. The Roman Catholics not being
quite so powerful at head quarters as they
were in the time of Sir Richard Bourke,
when another special who shall be name-
less, was brought to Sydney and allowed
to go at large, we presume Carrick will
be forwarded to Port Macquarie forth-
with, or sent to vegetate on Cockatoo

The CONVICT BARRACKS.-On Satur-
day last His Excellency the Governor
visited the Prisoners’ Barracks, Hyde
Park, for the purpose of inspecting the
convicts who arrived by the Waverley.
The names of the men were called over,
and they were ranged round His Excel-
lency in a circle, when he explained to
them the situation in which they were
placed in regard to the term of probation
they were required to serve before being
assigned to private service, and the
rewards held out to them, by indulgences,
for good behaviour.

WINDUSS family – Tasmania and Victoria, Australia
John WINDUSS was born in December 1809 at Otterburn, Yorkshire, England and married Mary BELL. John belonged to the 96th Regiment and arrived in Hobart on 21st September 1841 on the ship “Waverley” with wife Mary.
As with the TEVELEIN family I have found most WINDUSS names in Tasmania and Victoria are connected to John and Mary and there are also WINDUSS descendants of John and Mary in Western Australia and New Zealand.
While I’m at this one – research to date indicates that WILLIAM and ELIZABETH JACKSON came on WILLIAM BROWN SCHOONER in 1853. Looking at records I find that the BEEJAPORE ( see also CRAIGS AND HURRELLS) which arrived in 1853, brought a number of JACKSONS and was clearly an emigrant ship which the WILLIAM BROWN was not.
