First Fleet Convict on the Charlotte

James Squire (also known as James Squires or Phillip Morris) was born 1754 in Kingston-On-Thames, Surrey, England. He was christened December 18, 1754, at All Saints Church in Kingston-On-Thames.[1] A convict transported to Australia, James is credited with the first successful cultivation of hops in Australia around the start of the 19th century, and is also considered to have founded Australia's first commercial brewery in 1798.[2][3]
