Hannah McDonald/David Carter
« on: Wednesday 17 January 07 22:00 GMT (UK) »
Am looking for the parents of Hannah McDonald. She was a convict who was sentenced in 1837 for 7 years for stealing clothes. It says on the indent that her step brother was convicted about 7 years earlier for 7 yrs.
She was from Queens county.
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks

I found something interesting

Hannah McDonald was convicted with an Alicia McDonald 40 Year's old, both tried and convicted of the same crime, same date, in the same entry in the book one after the other, Hannah was 16 and Alicia was 40, Having possessing of stolen goods, Stealing Clothing, both found Guilty, Alicia served time in Marybourgh Gaol, Laois and Hannah was sent to Dublin, where she was convicted to Australia on Sir Charles Forbes

All the dates match up june 28th 1836 - I think that is her mother?

Also her step Brother David Carter arrived 1834 on Parmelia and he Married Eliza Spencer

On Hannah's death records as Hannah Robinson Death in 1883 Sydney, Mother is listed as Alice (Which is a common nick name for Alicia)
