Samuel Dammant (d.1792)

SAMUEL DAMMANT was a convict who was tried and convicted at Woodbridge, Suffolk England on 14 April 1790 and sentenced to seven years transportation. DAMMANT arrived with the Third Fleet per Britannia (1791) on 14 October 1791.

Also on board was a convict named JOHN DAMMANT, who had been convicted at the Woodbridge, Suffolk in January 1790, and was likely a relative. JOHN DAMMANT had died and been buried at St. John’s as “JOHN DIAMOND, Convict” on 25 March 1792. SAMUEL, too, died soon after and was buried as “SAMAUL DIAMOND, Convict” in an unmarked grave at St. John’s Cemetery, Parramatta just three days later on 28 March 1792.
