St. John’s First Fleeters is a collection of biographies about the First Fleeters buried at St. John’s Cemetery, Parramatta, written by a team of historians.
The biographies are being published gradually throughout 2016 and 2017.
Over 50 First Fleeters are buried in the cemetery, but the majority have no memorial plaques and lie in unmarked graves. Ultimately, a complete list of the First Fleeters buried at the cemetery will appear on this page, but in the meantime the names of First Fleeters will only be added when the person’s burial at St. John’s is confirmed and their biography is written. At this stage, therefore, the majority of biographies available are on those who have a marked grave and/or a memorial plaque.
An asterisk indicates the person is buried in a marked grave and/or has a memorial plaque.
