Jenner, Richard

Convict tried at the Sussex Assizes in January 1799 and sentenced to seven years transportation. He arrived in Sydney in November 1800 on the Royal Admiral. By 1810 he had settled in Kissing Point. In July of that year, his house was robbed and his wife and manservant assaulted. The thieves were traced by a local Aboriginal man, Bundle, who identified one of their footprints, and arrested by the constable James Squire. Jenner received a land grant in the Hunters Hill, Lane Cove district from Macquarie, and was still living at Kissing Point in the 1820s.
