    This is a link to my family tree, which is a small part of the known local family
    of Benjamin Johns of the NSW Corps.

    Area Settled :
     
    Children :
    1 . Daniel JOHNS Drummer 7/8/1793 Boddingtons, transferred from the NSW Corps. to the 73rd Regiment 24 April 1810. Enlisted at the age of 8years. Daniel and his family moved to Ceylon so the Johns name ended here in Australia.
    2 . Mary JOHNS born 1795, Sydney married Thomas Denning 1816, Parramatta, born 1792, Longford, Ireland
    Arrived in Australia as a convict in 1814 aboard the Three Bees. He worked for John Macarthur, and was a postman in Parramatta.
    3 . Jane JOHNS
    History & Achievements :
    Several years ago 250 descendants of Benjamin Johns of the 102nd Regiment staged a reunion at
    Belgenny Farm near Camden. I believe Sgt Johns was stationed at Macarthurs farm at Camden where his daughter married a convict stationed there. His only son moved to Ceylon so the Johns name left with him.
    I heard a rumour that he was involved in the arrest of Governor Bligh in 1803, but have no more
    information on this. This would tie in with his being loyal & getting a job on Macarthurs farm. He was a Free Sargeant 102 Regt and Town Constable Windsor
