Henry King (d.1790)

HENRY KING was a convict and the eighth person buried at St. John’s Cemetery, Parramatta. He was buried on 27 December 1790 and now lies in an unmarked grave, the exact location of which is unknown.

His identity cannot be confirmed, as there were no convicts named HENRY KING in the lists of ships arriving before December 1790. His name may have been incorrectly recorded; assuming the surname KING was at least correct, there were three Second Fleeters with that surname: CHARLES KING per Scarborough (2) (1790), THOMAS KING per Neptune (1790) and THOMAS KING per Scarborough (2) (1790). Further research required.
