I've been watching, found it interesting..

I looked at this earlier...

There are 2 possible convicts, I couldn't see an occ. for the other one, arrived 1826 (without checking)...

I couldn't see an app to marry.

I couldn't find Ann's bro Henry (she arrived with him) they are from Kent.

I did see the the son John b. 1844.
