John Pendergast was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1769 and according to his wife's biographer Veronica CF O'Brien Sitton, came from one of the "distinguished Norman-Irish families of Ireland.

Available evidence indicates that John Pendergast was "transported for participating in the 1798 Irish Rebellion". However, the revolt was launched and suppressed - May, 1798, and the date of John's conviction was recorded as being a month earlier, in April 1798. However, it is possible he was involved in the priminary skirmishes which proceeded the outbreak of full-scale rebellion. He sailed on the Minerva, a vessel noted as carrying Irish rebels, which after leaving Cork in August 1799 arrived in Sydney on January 11, 1800.
