First Fleet marine, probably born at Peterborough, England in 1766. Married Alice MANSFIELD, widow of a fellow marine Thomas Harmsworth, in Sydney Town in 1791.
They had five children, and settled on Norfolk Island, later being relocated to the Derwent on the City of Edinburgh in 1808.
They farmed at Green Point near Bridgewater. This family has been well documented.
Daniel died in 1826 and was buried at St David's in Hobart.
The Alice Stanfield plaque attached by the Fellowship of First Fleeters incorrectly says that Alice was nee [born] Harmsworth, the name of her first husband.
