Note: In an email from Denise Mason she advises that John was born in Essex, yet the Pre 1860 Pioneer Register shows him being born in Woolwich, Kent in 1816.
Note: In the Convict Names of the Port Jackson Anthology, it is shown that he was 31 years old when he arrived in Australia. This would have him born about 1807.
