John Batman

John Batmans parents were born in England but his father William was sent to Australia as a convict for recieving stolen saltpetre. John was born on the 21st of January, 1801. He was baptised when he was nine, which was very strange. He moved to Van Diemens Land (Tasmania) in 1821 with his third child, Harry Batman. In 1835, Batman went back to his hometown, Parramatta, NSW for a visit.During that visit, he signed a treaty to buy the land of Port Phillip from the Wurundjeri elderly people. Sadly, Batman died way too young at the age of thirty eight on the sixth of May, 1839.
