William Roberts (d.1792)

WILLIAM ROBERTS was a convict who was buried in an unmarked grave at St. John’s Cemetery, Parramatta on 23 February 1792. His identity is not clear as there were a number of convicts with that name transported to the colony prior to this burial date. They include First Fleet convict WILLIAM ROBERTS per Scarborough (1788), Second Fleet convict WILLIAM ROBERTS per Neptune (1790) and convict WILLIAM ROBERTS per Pitt (1792). The latter ship, the Pitt, arrived just nine days before the burial at St. John’s, so it seems likely that the person buried on 23 February 1792 was the most recently arrived convict per Pitt (1792). Further research required.
