Kinchela, John 1774-1845
Irish-born law officer who was appointed Attorney-General of NSW at a salary of 1,200 pounds and then judge of NSW Supreme Court. He also served as a member of the first NSW Legislative Council. However, though Governor Richard Bourke praised his legal knowledge, he complained of Kinchela's extreme deafness claiming it hindered his work as a member of the Legislative Council.
