That bit I didn't have so now we have an age.

Thanks gibbo.

I found that one yesterday. :)


I wonder what name he is under in the 1841 census? He was in Campbelltown in 1839.
 
He may have been buried at St John's Parramatta:

Thanks Geoff.

I wonder where he was in 1841 census. He could not have gone far because he only had a ToL and not a CP.
