Biographies

According to the New South Wales, Australia, Settler and Convicts Lists of 1787 – 1834 John Holmes arrived in Australia in September 1815 as a fourteen year old convict. On the 16th of February 1815 John was placed on trial in Middlesex London England for larceny. He was sentenced with “Transportation” and was subsequently sent to Australian soil on board the vessel “Baring”. Thereafter he appears several times in The NSW Australia Settler and Convict Lists between the years of 1787 – 1834 as well as the NSW and Tasmania Convict Musters between the years 1806 – 1849.

Within the pages of the NSW Australia Colonial Secretary’s papers from 1788 – 1825 there exists an application to marry at St Johns Church Parramatta dated the 1st of December 1817 received from John Holmes and Eleanor or “Ellen” Cooney. They were finally married on the 3rd of April 1820. John and Ellen Holmes went on to have eight children. These children were John Frederick (1821 – 1855), Charles (1823 – 1867), James (1826 – 1907), Eliza (1828 – 1884), Richard (1831 – 1879), Johanna (1832 – 1856), my direct ancestor Edward James (1835 – 1907) and Emma (1837 - 1903). Edward James was my Great, Great, maternal Grandfather.
Ellen died in 1840 in Windsor NSW. John Holmes followed her a year later at the age of forty two years, on the 16th of September 1841, also in Windsor.
