AUSTIN, John who arrived on The Royal Admiral 1792
Tried 7 Dec 1791, Middlesex, Death commuted to Life
Also aboard was his wife Lydia Austin (free) possible nee Lydia Williams
In 1801: Shoemaker, Hawkesbury on self government leave
Lydia Austin was granted land at Mulgrave Place
Lydia appears on the 1802 list of free settlers from England who have left
NSW by different ships without any order from the Government now as
1. Joseph AUSTIN died Aug 1802, Mulgrave Place. Buried 18 Aug 1802
(infant) registered at St Johns Parramatta.

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.
