James Anderson (d.1791)

JAMES ANDERSON was recorded as a convict when he was buried in an unmarked grave at St. John’s Cemetery, Parramatta on 25 November 1791. His identity is unclear as there is no exact match in the convict records for ships arriving prior to November 1791, other than a JAMES ANDERSON per Albemarle (1791) who is recorded in the Convict Indents as having died in May 1791 while the Albemarle was at sea.

Other possibilities include Andersons who arrived between 1788 and November 1791; JOHN ANDERSON per Charlotte (1788), JOHN ANDERSON per Scarborough (1788), JOHN ANDERSON per Surprize (1) (1790), and EDWARD ANDERSON per Admiral Barrington (1791). Further research required.
