JOHN STEELE 1795 birth Sussex?

John Steele, a farmer, was convicted of highway robbery at Kent Assizes on 15 Mar 1819 & transported to VDL. The Tasmanian records show his native place as Sussex with DOB of 1795. I have no way of finding info on him from church or court records in England. Any help on his background would be appreciated.
