William Hubbard (d.1792)

WILLIAM HUBBARD was a convict who was buried in an unmarked grave at St. John’s Cemetery, Parramatta on 19 January 1792. His identity is unclear, as the only convict named WILLIAM HUBBARD who arrived in the colony prior to January 1792 was the First Fleet convict per Scarborough (1) (1788) and he is documented as living well after 1792. Assuming the surname was correctly recorded at least, the individual buried in January 1792 may have actually been Third Fleet convict JOHN HUBBARD per Albemarle (1791), which arrived in the colony on 13 October 1791. JOHN HUBBARD had been tried and convicted at Norfolk, England in 1790 and sentenced to seven years transportation. Further research required.
