William Harrison (d.1792)

WILLIAM HARRISON was a convict who was buried in an unmarked grave at St. John’s Cemetery, Parramatta on 31 January 1792. His identity is unclear as there were two convicts transported with this name prior to January 1792 including WILLIAM HARRISON per Britannia (1791) and WILLIAM HARRISON per Queen (1791). A third WILLIAM HARRISON would arrive after this burial date per Pitt (1792) on 14 February 1792. Note: all three individuals named WILLIAM HARRISON passed away and were buried in the cemetery in early 1792. For those profiles, see WILLIAM HARRISON buried in the cemetery on 20 April 1792 and WILLIAM HARRISON buried in the cemetery on 25 April 1792. Further research required, but it may never be possible to determine exactly which WILLIAM HARRISON died on each occasion.
