the 1818 Musters John REEVES was in Government Employ in Hobart and his future partner, Elizabeth BURRELL was in The Government Factory. On 19 Apr 1819 Elizabeth had a son named Thomas BURRELL, and this child later became known as Thomas REEVES.
b.On 17 Jul 1819 he gained a Ticket of Leave, and had Elizabeth BURRELL “assigned” to him.
c.In the 1821 Muster (18 Sep) he was renting a farm at Browns River and had not re-offended. Brown’s River is about 9 to 11 miles out of Hobart - there was no road to it in the early days, and it was accessible only by boat.
d.In the 1823 (Oct/Nov) Convict Muster, he is listed as being unmarried.
e.Around 1824 he was renting land at (Crayfish/Crawfish Point) Sandy Bay from George CARTWRIGHT (a Solicitor). Sandy Bay is 7-9 miles out of Hobart.
f.He is not listed in the 1826 Convict Muster - presumably pardoned by then.
g.In 1828 he gave up the Farm at Sandy Bay, and on 20 Jul 1830 was renting 300 acres of land in Kingsboro’ Parish.
h.From 1834 to 1844 he held the license for the hotel Stag and Hounds in Harrington Street, Hobart. He had a house in Patrick Street near the corner of Lansdowne Street between 1848 and 1859. This house was constructed of brick and wood. His son, Thomas was living with him in 1848.
i.He died at his residence in Patrick Street, aged 68 years on 22 Sep 1859 from a long standing disease of the prostate gland. Friends were “respectfully invited to attend his funeral which will move from his Late Residence, on Monday, 26th at 2 o’clock”. (Ref: Hobart Town Daily Mercury, Saturday 24 Sep 1859)
j.John and Elizabeth had two more known children, Jane REEVES born c.1822 and Andrew REEVES born c.1825. In the 1823 Muster Elizabeth is recorded as being with John REEVES. Elizabeth was granted her Free Certificate on 6 Feb 1824. It does not appear that John ever married Elizabeth, but they remained together.
k.Elizabeth REEVES died in 1835 aged 52 years, a publicans wife and was buried 16 Feb 1835 at St. Davids
