John was born in Manchester to John McCallister and Jane Schofield.  He married Mary Ann Lynch in Manchester in 1861.  In WA he co-habited with Hannah Greaves, also from Manchester, and they had two daughters.  When he re-offended and was in gaol, she married Thomas Elliott (transported as Alfred Riley), and her two daughters were raised as his.
