1851 English census 1 Lambeth Street Tower Hamlets, Jeremiah Buckley aged 40, a Military Pension b Cork Ireland, wife Ann aged 24, b Cork Ireland a Tailor’s assistant, Ellen aged 1 b Lambeth and Margaret aged 3 months b Wapping, Surrey
Both Ellen age 3 and Elizabeth age 2 received medical treatment during the voyage of the Dudbrook.

After the arrival of the Dudbrook Jeremiah Buckley was one of the pensioners with a complaint against the Superintendent who in reply said the bed was thrown overboard because Jeremiah refused to clean it.
28th April 1853 Jeremiah was one of the detachment of pensioner guards sent to the Lynton Port Gregory Convict depot per William Pope to relieve the detachment of the 99th Regiment.
31/12/1853 Pensioners were allotted land grants of 3 acres at Lynton (Port Gregory) however the land was located next to a salt lake and proved uninhabitable and unhealthy and was a complete failure. After a damning report by the Resident Magistrate attempts were made to relocate them, however when the Lynton Depot was disbanded most of the pensioners were reassigned land at Greenough.
EPG John Brown, charged and sentenced to 2 years imprisonment for shooting Mrs Buckley in 1855.

In December 1863 an extensive fire destroyed crops, live stock, field fences and farming implements belonging to many Greenough Flats’ settlers. The Buckley’s lost 2 acres of wheat and 4 pigs (others lost much more).
