Proctor, James (1761–1801)

James Proctor joined Sirius as a quarter gunner on 20 December 1786. He arrived with the ship in Sydney in January 1788 as part of the First Fleet. After the Sirius was wrecked at Norfolk Island in 1791 he decided to become a settler and received a 60 acre grant of land on the island. By 1794 (probably earlier) he was living with Mary Allen who had also gone to Norfolk Island on the Sirius in 1791. Proctor died on 21 October 1801.
