what about after she was cut to herself .  Does anyone know where she went or if she died.  thanks

I am not sure what you are talking about, but perhaps it is the notation on her convict conduct record.

Cert Free 29 Jany 1853 herself.  This means her Certificate of Freedom issued 29 January 1853 and it was claimed by her.



William and Sabina went to New Zealand and further children were born there.  She died in 1901.  Indexes are free to search online.

William and Sibby were researched by David Coad in his book "Port Cygnet English Convicts"
The couple and their three children arrived aboard the Reindeer at Lyttleton NZ in October 1855.
They had five more children, Sabina died in 1901 and William in 1904.

Interesting read about a visit to the Brickfields hiring depot where Sibby would later be charged with allowing smoking in the dormitory.

Marquessate  Thank you for answering my query so much usually if it says cut to self the husband has died or run away.  Obviously not in this case.  I am a researcher trying to find what happened to the convict women who came to Tasmania  would you be able to list the children
