Robert Barber (d.1791)

ROBERT BARBER was listed as a convict in the St. John’s burial register for June 1791. However, there were no individuals named ROBERT BARBER in the convict lists for ships that arrived prior to June 1791. Perhaps he was incorrectly recorded as a convict and actually arrived as a free person aboard the First or Second Fleets. Alternatively, if his convict status was correct, then he may have actually been JOHN BARBER; a convict who was tried in Norfolk, England in 1787, sentenced to fourteen years transportation, and arrived with the Second Fleet per Surprize (1) (1790). Further research is required.
