Person Notes:

Joseph, aged 11 years, joined the NSW Corps as a drummer in Sydney in

 

 

 

1800 and sailed for England on 12 May 1810 on board the Hindostan (also

 

 

on board was William Bligh) in 1810 when the New South Wales Corps.

 

 

(102 Regt.) was recalled. He was discharged in 1811. While in England he

 

 

married Elizabeth Pritchard and they had two children a boy and a girl.

 

 

The family returned to Australia on board the "Shipley" in 1817 and in

 

 

November 1818 they travelled to Derwent, Tasmania on board the "Prince

 

 

Leopold". They returned to NSW in 1819 where the remainder of their

 

 

children were born.

 

 

On  10  June  1818  their  third  child,  a  son  named  Joseph,  was  born.

 

 

According to his death certificate he was born in Pitt Town, Sydney.

 

 

Joseph next appeared in The Colonial Secretary Index, 1788-1825 showing

 

 

that the family had travelled to Tasmania in December 1818 on board the

 

 

“Prince Leopold”. According to the newspaper “The Hobart Town Gazette

 

 

and Southern Reporter” dated Saturday 9 January 1819 Joseph Eades was

 

 

appointed a Constable of Hobart on 9 Jan. 1819. They only remained in

 

 

Tasmania for about three months. The Tasmanian Archives shipping shows

 

 

Joseph returned to NSW on the “Surrey” on 7 April 1819, travelling from

 

 

Hobart to Port Jackson. A fourth child named Eleanor was born on 8 July

 

 

1820 in New South Wales.

 

 

In 1820 Joseph applied for a grant of land and two cows. In his book “The

 

 

Second Fleet” Michael Flynn states: “In May 1820, describing himself as a

 

 

resident of the Evan district, Eades petitioned Governor Macquarie for a

 

 

land grant and two cows. He stated that he had married in England and

 

 

returned to the colony and was now supporting four small children. The

 

 

petition was annotated 80 acres and a grant was issued to him in early

 

 

1821. He was then aged about 31.

 

 

A further two children were born, Edward J baptised in 1823 and William

 

 

born in 1825.

 

 

In June 1825 he successfully petitioned the Governor for the grant of an

 

 

allotment in the township of Richmond to enable him to build a cottage for

 

 

his wife and six young helpless children. Colonial Secretary’s Index

 

 

1788-1825 shows this land was granted in 1825.

 

 

The 1828 Census for NSW shows the family was separated, with some of

 

 

the children living away from home and presumably working. The mother
