John Batman (1801-1839), pioneer of Melbourne, was born on 21 January 1801 in New South Wales. His parents, Mary Mobbs are also uncertain but she was likely to have been born on 3 November 1766 and baptised on 9 November 1766 at Charlbury, Oxfordshire, England, the daughter of Isaac Mobbs and Mary Ireland who had been married on 24 December 1763 at St. Mary-le-bone, London to William. They reached Sydney in the Ganges on 2 June 1797. William was a Middlesex cutler and grinder of Yorkshire background, transported for receiving stolen saltpetre; his wife paid her fare and brought with her their children, Maria and Robert.
Eliza Thompson, convicted at 17 as Elizabeth Callaghan, disembarked at Hobart Town under sentence for passing a counterfeit bank note in London. John Batman found footing as a grazier. In 1823 he contracted to supply the government meat stores at George Town. By 1824 he had enough capital to graduate from leasehold to a grant of 600 acres (243 ha), Kingston, under Ben Lomond, where Eliza Thompson soon joined him as an absconder. In March 1828 they were married at St John's, Launceston.
