Joseph Marshall (c.1754-1819)

Joseph Marshall is one of St John’s First Fleeters. Marshall was a convict transported with the First Fleet per Scarborough (1788). On receiving a land grant at The Ponds, Marshall joined forces with Edward Elliott, his old Scarborough shipmate who had received a neighbouring allotment. He was 65 years old when he passed away at Parramatta on 1 January 1819. He was buried at the cemetery the following day, 2 January 1819, in an unmarked grave. The location of his final resting place in the cemetery is, therefore, unknown.
