John Teale was born in York in 1787. He was tried in March 1813 at the
Lancaster Courtand sentenced to Life. Do not know what the charges w
record on theLancaster cort on Microfilm at the Mitchell Library. H
assigned to Henry Kable at Windsor about a year later where he met Di
ana. John Teale MarriedDiana Gaurdy .
John Teale and Henry Kable were provably similar in build. Teale wa
s 6'6" tall with a hook-nose, a dark moustache and beard, and smoke
d apipe. He had the largest Flour Mill in the colony at the time. I
t was calledFairy Dell Flour Mill at one time, also Endeavour Mill
. It stood in George Street opposite Dight St. A team of 48 Horses i
n shifts of 16 with 50 convictsoperated the Mill. He was intereste
d in Horse racing and one of the foundersin the district. Races wer
e held at Killarney near Mcgrath Hill from 1832. Teale was a stewar
d along with George Loder and John McDonald. Teale mest havebeen fai
rly well educated as his hadwriting was very good and his letters t
o the Colonial Secrectary and others show this. He was a well liked m
an and agenerous one.
An interesting story that I have recently found out about, is Josep

young brother of John Teale migrated to NSW about 1837 at theage o

AN EXTRAORDINARY CONVICT.
Early in 1982 I called at the 1788-1820 Association rooms in Assembl
Sydney, to make enquiries about some members of William Cox's roadbui
lding team on the Blue Mountains routein 1814-1815. The Associatio
n assistant that day was most interested in my research into the Kabl
e/Teale family history.
Surprisingly, the association had recently received a letter from a C
Teale, a member of the Tealefamily in Yorkshire England. Christine h
migrated to Australia some 15 years before with her husbank and youn
After living in Sydney then Melbourne the family moved to the warme
r climate of Darwin! Since then Christin's household had expanded. He
r young daughter
brought home a little school library book entitled "Australia Day" wh
mentioned the work and role of the 1788-1820 group. Hence Christine'
s letter to the association and contacts withanother Teale researche
r, Val Tuckwell and myself. So began an amazing trialogue on the Teal
e family history between
Christine, Val and I.
One day during the march 1813 Court Session at Lancaster, England a y
oung man, a butcher by trade, about 24 years old, stood in the dock w
aiting to be
sentenced. It is not known exactly what crime he committed, probabl
y robbery or burglary. John Teale, a native of Yorkshire, was give
n a Life Sentence. Most Likely Tealewas born in the family farmhous
e at Garforth, near Leeds, Late in 1788. He was the first child of Th
omas Teale and Ann Burton. The countryside around where the Teale fam
ily built their homes 100 or 200 years ago and still standinghas his
toric importance. Dick Turpin actually rode his horse through Teale p
roperties on his ride to York.. Cromwell`s men fought and won a battl
e there at one time.
Young Teale spent two miserable years languishing in H.M. Prison befo
boarding the Transport ship the "Indefatigable" bound for Port Jackso
"Indefatigable" under the control of Mast. Bowles reached its destina
Sydney Cove, on the 26th April 1815. Shortly after his arrival, Joh
n Teale was assigned to Mr. Henry Kable of Windsor. a Macquarie tow
n situated 40 miles North-West of Sydney. John Teale's phy
