Was Daniel Murphree deported from Ireland to America around 1737?

I found this list of deportations from Dublin in the late 1730's.

There are three "Daniel Murphy"s deported around 1737/8. Has anyone else pursued this line and either eliminated or confirmed the link?

If the story that the Murphy boys fought against the British and when the British won sought them out for punishment, perhaps Daniel was caught and deported. From what little research I've done political prisoners, vagabonds, rogues, etc. were commonly sent to America from Dublin in the 1700's. However, the name Daniel Murphy had to be terribly common so there's no reason to assume this is our Daniel.
