This site is my attempt to preserve as much detail as possible regarding the lives of my ancestors who came from various places in Great Britain, Ireland, Scotland and Wales and many of whom settled in Australia. The information is being gathered for the benefit of their descendants, those presently living and those yet to come.

I would love to hear from anyone who shares common ancestry Send an e-mail to: Amanda Taylor

Our Convict Past

Today in Family History Research circles, it seems quite fashionable to be able to Claim a Convict or two in one's ancestry. We have claim to at least six :

Although I have found no evidence of proof at this stage, it would appear that our ancestor Thomas SADLER may be the convict who arrived on the "Mellish" in 1829? It is also quite possible that his future wife Ann FINNIGAN arrived as a Convict?

Then, there is the mystery of who was Rebecca WATSON's mother? Her mother, was almost certainly a convict, and was quite possibly Sarah DORSET who arrived as a convict on the ship "Lady Juliana"?
