Harrigan, Teague (Edward) (1771–1825)

Teague Harrigan was sentenced to seven years transportation for stealing clothing with a value of 20 shillings. He arrived in Sydney in 1791 aboard the Salamander. He was then sent to Norfolk Island where he began a relationship with Mary Wade. They had at least one child before moving to Sydney some time prior to 1800.

In 1806 he was working as a labourer. He then left on a whaling expedition on the Fox in 1806. In the 1814 Muster he is again recorded as a labourer. It is believed that he died at Port Darlrymple, Tasmania, in about 1825.
