John Akers (d.1791)

JOHN AKERS was a convict who was tried and convicted at the Old Bailey, London and sentenced to seven years transportation on 15 January 1790 (although his Old Bailey trial record for the crime that saw him transported does not appear to have survived). He arrived with the Third Fleet per Albemarle (1791) on 13 October 1791 but, like so many of his fellow Third Fleeters, he did not even live long enough in the colony to see the end of the year. He was buried in an unmarked grave at St. John’s Cemetery, Parramatta on 25 December 1791.
