William Hague (d.1792)

WILLIAM HAGUE was a convict who was buried in an unmarked grave at St. John’s Cemetery, Parramatta on 7 March 1792. There is no exact match for this name with any convicts transported on ships prior to March 1792. There was, however, the First Fleet convict named WILLIAM HOGG who was tried at the Old Bailey, London on 21 April 1784, sentenced to fourteen years transportation, and arrived with the First Fleet per Scarborough (1788). Further research required to determine if WILLIAM HAGUE buried at Parramatta in March 1792 was in fact WILLIAM HOGG and, thus, another one of St. John’s First Fleeters. One thing in favour of this is the fact that WILLIAM HOGG per Scarborough (1788) does not seem to appear on the 1806 muster list.
