Barnes, Samuel (?–1805)

Samuel Thomas was Revered Richard Johnson' servant. He arrived in Sydney (with the Johnsons) in January 1778 aboard the Golden Grove as part of the First Fleet. As chaplain's clerk his name appears frequently as a witness to weddings at Port Jackson. In mid 1802 he was recorded as on stores and holding a piece of land at Sydney by lease. He died on 12 January 1805 and was buried from St Philip's Church, Sydney.
