John married Susannah Rope, 1818, New South Wales.
Susannah was the daughter of Anthony Rope (First Fleet Convict, Alexander, 1788) and Elizabeth Pulley (First Fleet Convict, Prince of Wales, 1788).
John and Susannah had 3 daughters: Eliza 1819; Mary Ann 1821; and Sarah 1824.
No further details are known about John, he must have died pre 1828.  Susannah and children are recorded in the census but not John.
