    Notes 
    • John Fell (1838-1883) was the son of Yorkshire convict Charles Fell (per Hindostan 1821) and currency-lass Frances Pembroke nee Collits (daughter of Hartley innkeepers Pierce Collits and Mary Hardwick, and widow of Irish convict Thomas Michael Pembroke per St Michael 1819). John Fell was born in 1838 at Penrith, where his father was apparently a coachman on Sir John Jamison's "Regentville" estate. The Fell family relocated to Hartley in the early 1840's.

      John and Sarah Fell remained in the Hartley district for a decade after their marriage where John worked as a farmer. Around the year 1870 the family moved north to the Inverell district where John was working as a carrier in Inverell and Bundarra in the early 1870’s and as an innkeeper at King John's Swamp near Bundarra by the mid-late 1870's. In the early 1880's John decamped with a much younger woman named Alice White or Steus. They had a son born in 1882 at Tamworth and had settled in Sydney a year later. John contracted typhoid and died in Sydney in 1883.
