Thank you for looking. I thought maybe he was a convict and because there
was a John McKEON (or Thomas SHIELS) who was quite literate tried to change
his identity several times to get a reduced (some else's) sentence.
I have just found a John McLEAN who was in the British Army and came out
with the NSW Corp. but I don't know when so I can't conform the dates..
I found the following in the NSW State Library:
Overseer for J. Campbell at Parramatta
Came Free 1821
Gardener for John McArthur at Parramatta
British Army Record 1788 - 1870
(Possibly 1/12 East Suffolk Regiment of Foot)
The man I am looking for is John McCLEAN, who says he cam out on the
Champion in 1817, but the Champion didn't come to Australia in 1817.
He married Susanah CRUISE (who came out on her own aged 21 from Scotland in
1833 on the Cabotia)
They married in 1834 at St. Mary's in Sydney.
Thank you for looking.

There are 4 John McLeans in the 1837 NSW General Return of Convicts aged
22, 34 and 43...guess you've investigated them all.
