That's the right death.

Don't know about a connection to Furness. Known connections are Campbell, Galt, Anderson, Pollock.

The Moreton Bay Courier (Brisbane, Qld.) - Sat 16 Apr 1859 p.2
Two prisoners, David Cadwaller and John Williams, were brought here for trial, by the Clarence, on a charge of robbery and murder at Rockhampton on the 12th of March. The murdered man's name was Nevin Galt.

Death for Jane/Jean Galt, wife of Nevin not found.

Again, we have Mary Pawley living in Glasgow. I don't have her in 1851 yet.

If the name was transcribed as PAUL then there are too many in Glasgow.

For some reason Jean is POLLOCK here - an error, or a second marriage, or a change of name because mother remarried ??

Marriage says Pollock and shipping record does not agree ?? ... A brother Wm Pawley in Brisbane ...
One of three reasons why the Pollock & Pauley name difference.

Image has Pollock.
