Hello Folks,

I have confirmed that the inquest in relation to Samuel's death confirmed he died at "H.M. Barracks, Parramatta". Do think this was whilst he was helping to build the Barracks at Parramatta (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lancer_Barracks) or was there some kind of prison there?

Cheers for any support,

Tom

Hi Tom,

I would guess that he died at the Parramatta Convict Barracks and not the Military Barracks and if this was the case he most likely was not assigned to a master but he was employed in some capacity by the Government.

Just a theory.

I would agree with Gerry's suggestion.
