Robert Rose (d.1792)

ROBERT ROSE was a convict who was tried and convicted at Chelmsford, Essex, England and sentenced to seven years transportation in 1787. ROSE arrived with the Third Fleet per Admiral Barrington (1791) on 16 October 1791 but did not survive long. He was buried in an unmarked grave at St. John’s Cemetery, Parramatta on 15 April 1792. Note that there were two other convicts who were buried around the same time with this surname, JOHN ROSE and JOSEPH ROSE, and all hailed from the same area of England; the latter in particular was tried at the exact same place. Further research required to determine if they were all from the same family.
