Brother of convict Joseph. 1839, killed convict George Keith during a drunken fight in Tasmania. Sentenced to Norfolk Island for life. Reunited with his brother Joseph on Norfolk Island in 1839. On 30th November 1840, escaped on a boat with Thomas Mullen, Joseph Hirst, a pirate, John Halls, William Atkinson and James Smith. All these men had seafaring experience and being the wet season, had plenty of water. I believe they made it to New Zealand because John’s brother Joseph went over there in 1850 for a while.
