Further InformationRichard Pimlott was attested to the British Army with no profession because of his age: he was aged 12 years 10 months.
Richard Pimlott’s death in Sydney New South Wales in 1863 was subject to a Police Inquest on 19th August 1863: he was found to have died of natural causes.
Richard Pimlott left Victoria (presumably Melbourne) by the ship Seaman’s Pride in May 1862 bound for British Columbia Canada. He must have disembarked, en route, in Sydney New South Wales, where he subsequently died in 1863.
