Some trees have this as the death of the convict transported to NSW but I'm not so sure so time for another look.

This one we have. Died on 1st, registered on 5th and buried 7th seems a bit odd:

1841 Death - Registration District of Keynsham - Sub-district of Oldland in the County of Gloucester
No 157 - First of February 1841 at Mount Hill Hamlet of Oldland - Betty Willmott - Female - 88 years - Widow of Giles Willmott Coal Miner - Gradual Decay - The Mark X of Ann Peacock Present at Death Warmley Hill Hamlet of Oldland - Fifth of February 1841 - Hy Mills Grace Registrar

7 ? Feb 1841 Betty Wilmot 88, Bitton, St Mary, bur.

I doubt he made it back to England but this is the last trace found:

Morning Chronicle (Sydney, NSW : 1843-1846) - Saturday 22 March 1845 p.4
CONDITIONAL PARDONS DATED 1st FEB 1845
Wilmot Joseph, Vittoria
