John received a Conditional Pardon in 1853 and married a felow convict from Scotland, Jane Park, the following year.  They initially lived in Hobart and moved to Maitland in 1860.  The place and dates of death are unknown.  I have a great deal more information about both Jane and John and can be contacted.
