Joseph Rose (d.1792)

JOSEPH ROSE was a convict who was tried and convicted at Chelmsford, Essex, England and sentenced to seven years transportation on 8 March 1790. ROSE arrived with the Third Fleet per William and Ann (1791) on 28 August 1791 but did not last long in the colony. He was buried in an unmarked grave at St. John’s Cemetery, Parramatta on 16 April 1792. Note that two other convicts with the surname ROSE who all hailed from the same area of England died around the same time, possibly indicating that they were related. Their names were JOHN ROSE and ROBERT ROSE. Further research required to determine if they were from the same family.
