Article1822John Kirk was tried before Justice Johnston on 27th March 1822 (Lent Assizes) having in his possession, "a cow sworn to be stolen" and was sentenced to be transported for seven years. Despite a petition in June 1822 sent by Kirk to the Marquis of Wellesley, Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, he was transferred to the 'gaol of Kilmainham'. Further character references sent in October of that year failed to bring about his release, but reveal more information about the prisoner and his confinement. In one, George Birch, J.P., and Minister of the parish of, Comber, states that, "I have known John Kirk, parish clerk and schoolmaster, for many years and certify him a man of excellent character". The curate of Kilclief, Samuel Burdy, states that "he was both parish clerk and schoolmaster in this parish for one year ending first May 1814 and that in both capacities his conduct gave satisfaction to my parishioners of every description", while J. Nelson D.D., Downpatrick, tells us that "John Kirk is properly qualified to teach an English school and gives close attention to his duty". While confined in Down County Gaol, John Kirk seems to have been a model prisoner. From the Reverend Richard Maunsell, Local, Inspector of Down Gaol, we learn that "the petitioner has behaved himself with the greatest, propriety during his confinement. His conduct was worthy of imitation". The Gaol Chaplain, Reverend A. Bullock, echoes these views and he reports the he (John Kirk) "has three different times in a pious and exemplary manner received the sacrament of the Lord's Supper at my hands". Despite further glowing testimonials by John McCoubery, Medical Attendant of Down Gaol.. Wm. Johnston Esq, James Richardson, Sidney H. Rowan and others, John Kirk was transferred to Kilmainham Gaol, Dublin. Furthermore we learn from a statement by Hugh Gray, Keeper, Downpatrick Gaol, that the "petitioner's conduct during the march from Downpatrick to Kilmainham was very good and regular".

A petition from Kilmainham, dated 1st February 1823 and signed by John Kirk gives further insights into his character and additional family information:- "Memorialist humbly craves of your Excellency to experience a small share of your clemency in alleviating in the small measure memorialist distress, as he was brought up formerly to habits of industry, he humbly hopes that your Excellency will be pleased to place memorialist in the penitentiary for whatever time your Excellency may think proper, which will leave your humble memorialist wife; and two infant children as in duty bound ever to pray." (Mrs. James, from her own genealogical research, believes that John, born c 1789 married Isabella Robinson, baptised 9.8.1794 Broadmills, Down, father John Robinson, mother Elizabeth. Mrs. James has traced a William Kirk; baptised. 30.3.1814, Inch, Down, father John Kirk, mother Isabella Robinson, She believes that it was this William and his young brother George who were left behind in Ireland with their mother when John Kirk was transported). A third petition sent to the Lord Lieutenant, despite having been signed by the chief noblemen and gentlemen of that county (Down)' again failed to halt transportation procedure as John Kirk was transferred to the 'Earl St. Vincent' in Cork.

On 27th April 1823, Robert Tainsh, the doctor on board the 'Earl St. Vincent' reports that John Kirk had been very ill for the chief part of the eight weeks which he had been on board "which renders him entirely unfit for the voyage". During this time Dr. Tainsh had appointed him schoolmaster as he had "formed the most favourable opinion of him". John Kirk was to spend the next four months in the Cork penitentiary. During this time he acted as church clerk and schoolmaster, conducting himself "to the satisfaction of the different officers of the prison".

He was then placed on board the convict hulk 'Surprise' in Cork Cove, where he was to stay for the next five months. In yet another petition, dated 19th September 1823 from the 'Surprise', the reader can sense a note of desperation as John Kirk once again asks the Lord Lieutenant for clemency. "Petitioner most humbly state that from the anxious thoughts, for the welfare of his helpless wife and two infant children he has left without any means of support added to his own sufferings both by land, and sea, render petitioner truly 'an object of compassion. He therefore most earnestly prays you to take his lamentable case into your accustomed human consideration and grant him the smallest share of your unbounded clemency, that has so often distinguished your illustrious name. The least mitigation of said sentence would alleviate the throbbings of a broken heart and dry the tears of distress and leave your humble petitioner, his wife and two infants as deeply bound in duty".

This final plea obviously failed as John Kirk was eventually transported to Australia on board the 'Prince Regent'. From a request made by Captain R. P. Stewart of Parramatta on 26th October 1825 for the Governor of New South Wales, Sir Thomas Brisbane, to grant Kirk a ticket of leave, we discover that he was appointed schoolmaster on board and that "his attention to the children during a period of six months, as well as his general conduct, was most, exemplary". Captain Stewart, having observed Kirk's conduct at Parramatta, made a strong case for his release. The following year, John Kirk petitioned Governor Darling of New South Wales, asking for his wife Isabella and two small sons to be given free passage out to Australia. This was unsuccessful, and in 1833 he married Elizabeth Quinn (a convict from County Antrim) and had seven children. John Kirk died on 9th March, 1855 aged 66 years.
