John Heart (d.1792)

JOHN HEART was a convict buried in an unmarked grave at St. John’s Cemetery, Parramatta on 29 April 1792. His identity is not clear because there is no exact match for this name in the records of convicts transported to the colony prior to this burial date. However, the name was likely a misspelling of the name JOHN HART. There were a number of convicts with this name in the colony prior to April 1792 including First Fleet convicts JOHN HART per Alexander (1788) and JOHN HART per Scarborough (1788), Third Fleet convict JOHN HART per William and Ann (1791), and JOHN HART per Pitt (1792). Further research required to positively identify the correct JOHN HART among these options.
