There is a marvellous book listing all the burials and re-interment info for
the Devonshire Street Cemetery. Its by Saintly & Johnson.

Subject: [PJ] Austin Family
Trying to identify a convict John Austin, born about 1761. He was a pastry
cook and went to the Bench of Magistrates in 1816 for "Baking and selling
light bread and using light and illegal weights". There were five John
Austins I have listed as convicts, two I have eliminated due to a probably
incorrect age and third arrived too late in colony, this leaves me with
1792 'Royal Admiral' and 1806 'Fortune 1' , I am tending to the first one
but wondering if there is anyone else researching the Austin family. It
also appears as if he was buried in the old Devonshire St Cemetery 'known
as Sandhills' however due to it being resumed I have no further
information. His son John Austin born 1818 is my link but I have not
discovered the wife/mother. Any help would be appreciated.
