    Notes:

    Transported to Tasmania as a 12 year old , after being convicted at Liverpool on 14th January 1832 and sentenced to 14 years, departing Woolwich, London on 26 Feb 1832 aboard the Katherine Stewart Forbes,arriving on 16 Jul 1832.

    An ill fated voyage, cholera broke out aboard on the day she sailed from Woolwich, and she anchored in Plymouth Sound ,but was ordered to put to sea again after receiving medical supplies and the services of an assistant surgeon from the Royal Navy. She returned to the Thames Estuary and was laid up in Stangate Creek until almost the end of March before being allowed to resume her voyage. Of the 222 convicts aboard, 30 men developed cholera and 13 died before she finally set sail from Woolwich in February 1832 bound for Van Diemans Land (arriving on 16 July) carrying 222 male convicts under the command of Captain James Berry.

    On 13 Sep 1852,John sailed to Victoria from Launceston, aboard the Vixen ,as a steerage passenger.He sailed as a free man having completed his sentence in 1846. No record can be found listing his family travelling with him at this time,and as he died at Fingal,Tasmania in 1856 it is assumed he returned and that the family only relocated to the the Goldfields area of Victoria after his death.

    (Research):John's parents were John Kellett(b 1793,Lancashire,England) and Mary Coulthard (b 9 Nov 1798 ,Hornby, Lancashire,England) .They were married on 18 August,1817 in St Mary`s Lancaster, England.

    INQUESTS. On Thursday last, 20th November, an inquest was held at Avoca before R. P. Stuart, Esq. and a respectable jury, touching the death of John Kellett, a small farmer, residing near Stoney Creek, who has left a widow and three children to deplore his loss. From the evidence it appeared that Kellett on Monday last was seen riding his horse at full speed on thie road from Avoca, and from the circumstances it was conjectured that the horse, on approaching a culvert, had shyed and thrown its rider, as there were marks of blood on a stone where it is supposed he had fallen, Mr. Clark, who had seen him only a few minutes before--Kellett having passed him on the road-on arriving at the spot found Kellett deluged in blood and quite dead. Verdict, accidental death.
