    History & Achievements :

    After Hannah died the same year, Richard married Mary Ann Watson. They left the colony for Ceylon in 1815 and probably returned to England. Although his children returned, it appears Richard and Mary stayed in England.

    BARNES, Richard and Hannah
    One listing for the Royal Admiral 1792 features Corporal Richard Barnes and his wife Hannah.
    The Corporal that came with the Royal Admiral in 1792 was in fact James ARCHER.
    Richard Barnes who held the rank of Sergeant of the NSW Corps actually arrived 22 Nov 1800 in the colony on the Royal Admiral's 2nd voyage to Australia (ML W012/9900 Royal Admiral 1800 Return of Detachment of NSW Corps).
    The 1801 muster shows Hannah Barnes of Sydney, free, arrived Royal Admiral. This entry may have lead to the confusion that she arrived on the Royal Admiral in 1792, as there is no notion was entered stating which year (1792 or 1800) or the voyage I or II.
    Richard Barnes served time on Norfolk Island as a daughter was born there in 1804 also they appear on the Norfolk Island Muster of 1805, they were returned to the mainland Apr 1809 aboard the Estramia, on this voyage Hannah gave birth to their son Francis Barnes
    Hannah died Feb 1810 Sydney Cove, soldiers wife, age 36 years, buried: 16 Feb 1810, Old Sydney Burial Ground
    Richard Barnes remarried 7 Jan 1811 St Phillips Sydney, Mary Ann WATSON. They may have left the colony for Ceylon in 1815. However there is a possible death for Richard 13 Oct 1826 Sydney.( "C/D " )
