     Pay record of Patrick CROWLEY of the 50th Foot, during the relevant years, 1834-1841.  The record was compiled from material gathered under the auspices of the Australian Joint Copying Project (AJCP).  It shows that Patrick CROWLEY served with the 50th Foot on Norfolk Island from the time of his first arrival in Australia in Feb 1835 to June 1836.  He was then transferred to Liverpool (NSW) and served there until June 1837, when he was again transferred, this time to the Illawarra District of NSW.  He served there until his departure with the Regiment to Calcutta, India, in Dec 1840.    He then returned to England where he was discharged on medical grounds in June 1846.   

    It was not until Apr 1850 (four years after his discharge) that he arrived in VDL for the first time - aboard ‘Eliza’ - as a ‘pensioner soldier’.    He was allocated land at Campbell Town and died there on 19 Aug 1854.
