Richard Powell (d.1792)

RICHARD POWELL was a convict who was tried and convicted at the Salop Assizes and sentenced to seven years transportation in 1790. POWELL arrived with the Third Fleet per Britannia (1791) on 14 October 1791 but, like so many of his fellow Third Fleet convicts, did not last long in the colony. He was buried in an unmarked grave at St. John’s Cemetery, Parramatta on 23 March 1792.
