Claimed convict


John was the sixth child of Henry and Ann Hollands. In February 1830 he was living in Herts, where with his eldest brother Thomas and John Llywellyn, they broke into the house of John Carswell and stole a timepiece and two spoons. John was sent to Guildford for trial and sentenced to life transportation for burglary. He sailed on the John on 9/10/1830, landing in Van Diemen's Land on 28/1/1831. His indent says he was 23, could read and write and was a plasterer by trade. John's conduct record shows he was regularly in trouble and often lashed for it. He received a conditional pardon in 1845.

In 1853 John married Honora Kennigan. They had four children, three of who survived to adulthood.

John died in 1877 at Macquarie Plains in the Derwent Valley of Tasmania. His cause of death is given as dropsy of the brain.
