     BURNSIDE Ambrose was with the 73rd Regiment arriving on the "anne" 27th feb 1810.Ambrose is listed as being paid from Police Funds for fencing the Government Domain at Parramatta 28/1/1815. He was granted 100 acres of land "anywhere in the colony" 28/10/1823. Ambrose was appointed a constable at Windsor 9/2/1825,but resigned 16/4/1825. He died in1827 aged 66. His wife Sarah applied to put their youngest child Anne in the orphans  school soon after his death. Anne committed "highway robbery' in 1834 at the age of 15, was convicted and sent to Tasmania. I am descended from Anne.
     ROBINSON ( Robertson )Charles was with the NSW Corps arriving on the "Active" 26/9/1791. Charles married Elizabeth Harris , a convict, in1794. On 19/11/1794 he is granted a town allotment. Charles and Elizabeth had a son John and a daughter Mary and at least one other girl ( still researching). Mary married John Waite , a convict who arrived in 1804. He was assigned to Charles Throsby, listed as his servant, and accompanied Throsby on his exploration of the Southern Highlands and what is now Canberra. As a reward John Waite was awarded land in the new territory of Argyle and he and Mary moved there in the 1820's. The town of Moss vale is built on their land. SCULLY Michael  was with the 48th regiment. I have little information on him other than he did stay .He and his wife Margaret both died in 1822 and their daughter Jane was placed in the Orphans School. I believe they had another daughter Margaret from whom I am descended.
