History & Achievements :

Joseph Bayliss, from Staffordshire trained as a nailer before he enlisted in the 37th Regiment along with his brother John. Soon afterwards they transferred to the NSW Corps in June 1789. Bayliss left England on the Surprize in November that year. He was transferred to Norfolk Island in 1793 and returned to Sydney in November 1795. In April 1803 Bayliss was discharged from the Corps and was granted 150 acres in the Evan district near his brother. He sold this grant to Andrew Thompson (qv) in June 1806 for £180. In June 1808 he rejoined the NSW Corps. He lived with Ann Price (Earl Cornwallis, 1801) and they had at least 8 children. They married in 1810. With the withdrawal of the NSW Corps to England Bayliss transferred to Macquarie's 73rd Regiment. Around 1814, he joined the colonial Veteran Company and was stationed at Windsor. Bayliss returned to his original trade as nailer at Windsor. In 1828 he was on 5 acres at Windsor. He later moved to Bathurst and lived with his daughter and her family. He died near Kelso on 18 March 1855. He was buried with Ann at Windsor with military honours.
