I am looking for information on 4*Great Grandmother called Rachel Early, she was born in 1769 in Lambourn England, she was tried i think in Portsmith England, she was sentenced to 7yrs transportation i think for stealing tea and silk. She left England on board the ship called the Friendship. I believe she arrived in Australia on board the Prince of Wales. Arrived in Australia in January 1788 with the First Fleet.
She had a relationship with a private in the Marines called Samuel Marsden. That relationship produced a child called Elizabeth Earley(my 3*Great Grandmother) who was born in Norfolk Island in 1794. Rachel died in 1842. Rachel I believe she could of died in Tasmainia as her daughter Elizabeth married a guy called Uriah Allender. Who was about 25 years older than her. Uriah Allender was a convict as well from Kent England. He arrived in Sorrento Melbourne on board the Calcutta in 1804. And later moved to Tasmania where he had Elizabeth Ealry were married and started a family.
Rachel Earley married a guy called John Price who was a convict as well. They were married in 1st June 1788 in Australia. John Price was tried in Southwark, Surrey 1785, for stealing livestock (a goose). He was sentenced to transportation for 7 years. He left England on the Alexander aged 22 in May 1787. He left NSW in 1793, He was the first person to die on Norfolk Island of natural causes not sure what year though.
I hope what i have written makes sense and that you can all understand what i have written. If anyone can supply with any more information no matter how little it is i would love to hear from you.
