EDWARD CONNELLY was a 32-year-old Irish convict who was tried and convicted of perjury at County Armagh, Ireland and sentenced to “be placed in pillory with ears nailed etc.,” as well as seven years transportation. Presumably after enduring the pillory, CONNELLY sailed with the Third Fleet per Queen (1791), which arrived in the colony on 26 September 1791. He did not last long in the colony; “EDWARD CONNOLEY [sic], Convict” was buried just six months later in an unmarked grave at St. John’s Cemetery, Parramatta on 27 March 1792.
