He is not identified as being a pensioner.
An Agnes Murphy departed 1st November 1855 on the VIVID for South Australia who may be Jeremiah’s wife.
There is no indication of why his pension was so high (1/3) as his rank is given as ‘private’ and he served less than 20 years, perhaps his injuries were severe
