William STUBBS, his wife Sarah WINGATE and three children (William jr, Sarah and Elizabeth) arrived as free settlers on the Coromandel on 13 June 1802. They settled on a 100 acre grant at Upper Crescent Reach on the Hawkesbury River in NSW, Australia. Sadly, William Sr drowned in the Hawkesbury River, while attempting to swim to shore after his canoe had overturned, on 29 May 1805. He was buried on his farm at Portland Head (the area is now known as Maroota).

Sarah later remarried on 16 November 1806 at St John's Parramatta to James Painter. James (b.c. 1761 England, d.c.1840) was a shipwright, and arrived as a seaman on HMS Sirius with the First Fleet.
