Further InformationDischarge due to reduction in Army, unfit for further service due to a shell wound in the back received while on sentry duty in the trenches before Sevastopol on 31 July 1855.
In 1865 Nicholas Dullard was one of the pensioners who volunteered to accompany the ill-fated Camden Harbour settlement. Also included in the expedition was his wife Fanny and 12 year old son William. Nicholas suffered an axe wound to his leg which due to the tropical climate became infected causing some concern. They returned to Perth when the project was abandoned.
In 1873 there are two newspaper accounts of inquiries into the alleged stabbing of Nicholas Dullard by Henry Feast. Eventually dismissed as the evidence given by 4 children points to the son of Henry Feast throwing a brick which caused the injury to Nicholas Dullard’s face not a knifing.
On 2nd October 1 875 William Dullard applied for a Certificate of Change or residence to Wellington New Zealand as he wished to reside there where his pension was paid between 1876 and 1881 when the whole family must have returned to Ireland as his pension was paid in Clonmel in 1883.
We find son William Dullard is living at Walkin St., Upper, Kilkenny Urban, Kilkenny, Ireland in the 1901 Census of Ireland with his family although Nicholas and Fanny are not on this census.
