    Notes 
    • Arrived in Australia on 7 October 1792 as a convict aboard the "Royal Admiral". He was tried and sentenced at Inverness Scotland (his place of birth). He had been charged with stealing horses, found guilty and sentenced to 7 years transportation. He arrived in New South Wales as a convict aboard "Royal Admiral" in 1792. At some stage he received a full Pardon. He was in the New South Wales Corps (102nd Regiment) and served in the company commanded by Lt Colonel William Patterson (who is mentioned in our history books)from February 1801 until April 1803, for one shilling (10 cents)a day. He was a pioneer of the Penrith District in New South Wales and was one of the first to receive a land grant (160 acres) at Penrith. All the grants at the time were on the eastern side of the Nepean River (Sydney side) and a government order of the day, was that all homes had to face the river.
      Governor Lachlan Macquarie's "Tour of NSW - Journal 1810" gives an interesting description of the district when he visited there on 30 November 1810. A copy of the relevant page from the journal is attached. Donald Kennedy was one of those who signed the letter in the Sydney Gazette in 1810.
