Great work! I hope the following summary and assumptions for further research is correct:

1. Thomas Collins convicted 31 July 1879
2. Thomas William Collins (Son) born D Quarter 1879
3. Thomas Collins discharged 30 Jan 1880
4. Thomas Collins shown in the USA 1880 Census (1 June 1880) showing DOB about 1850
5. Thomas Collins recorded as in America in the UK 1881 Census (3 April 1881)
6. Julia Collins (Widow) marries William James Parry 21 May 1883
7. PARRY/COLLINS marriage certificate 6 March 1872 states Thomas Collins' age as 23 i.e. born circa 1849
8. Frederick Arthur Collins (Son) born circa 1881?

Assuming 5&6 are correct, Thomas Collins died after 3 April 1881 and before 21 May 1883, during which time, another son, Frederick Arthur was born circa 1881.

For consideration:
GRO death records show a Thomas (James?) Collins death record for M Qtr 1883, which subject to registration timings I understand may indicate actual date of death as early as late 1882:

COLLINS, THOMAS JAMES 32
GRO Reference: 1883 M Quarter in PORTSEA ISLAND Volume 02B Page 286

The location PORTSEA ISLAND (near Portsmouth) is interesting, given his sailing to and from America, if indeed he did return.

Where would Thomas have served his sentence for hard labour?
Any further convictions?
How was his trip to and from America funded?

The search concerning Frederick Collins' birth (and under what registered name) continues. Any further information and advice much appreciated.
