Purver, John (1771–1846)

John Purvey was sentenced to life transportation for stealing a mare colt. He arrived in Sydney aboard the Coromandel in 1802. He married Sarah Lowe in 1814. It seems they separated for a period but were together again by 1825 before separating again. In 1828 Purvey, labourer, was registered as living at William Stubbs's farm in the Hawkesbury.
