Hello all, I’m trying to find the names of the two children that travelled with their convict mother onboard the Lucy Davidson to Sydney Australia arriving November 1829.

Hello and welcome to the Forum.

We like difficult queries. :)

Children are not listed so not an easy one.

Ann Maria MARTIN 'Lucy Davidson' 1829 Ticket of Leave District: Airds; Tried: MGD [4/4089; Reel 919]

The youngest women on board were Susannah Harris and Susan James who were both 16 years old. Those who brought some of their children with them included Jane Carman (Cadman?) (2 children); Ann Greg (1); Ann Flinn (1); Jane Chappel (1); Hannah James (1); Mary Marshall (2); Mary Poulter (2); Anne Norris (1); Ann Martin (2); Maria Toomey (1); Tamar Section (2); and Elizabeth Waring (2).

4089 and 919 are films at Records NSW = NSW Archives at Kingswood, NSW.

I've been there once only being a very long journey by public transport from where I live in Sydney to research one convict in my tree.
I can't say if any film will list the children or not.

Her records state she is married, you have a name of her husband / father of the kids?

I found these 2 kids records and maybe could be worth looking into as maybe she couldnt have the kids depending on where she was sent to work?
