This is the link to the main Australian Resources Board here at RChat...  I tend to use many of the links available on that Board to find the indexed information and then I try to find the official records that either confirm or disprove my findings...

As you are located in Sydney, then there's some very good research facilities quite handy to you....  Perhaps a visit to the Parramatta Heritage Centre and a chat with the archivist upstairs who will be able to direct you to their archives ....  they were fantastic when I got there several years ago...

Many cheers

Umm,

Bit More,

1822 Muster has an Elizabeth LEITH on it but she was BORN in the Colony, and aged 6, and living with Harriet LEITH ex the convict ship Maria....

This may indicate there were several females named Elizabeth LEITH, for afterall I have also read on that link from Julie where the poster on that site notes "In the 1822 Muster George is listed as living in Baulkham Hills with Elizabeth Leith, also a convict.".... but I have gone through my 1822 Muster records and cannot find supporting info... Sorry.

Very interesting reading all the info about George Ham. I have recently come across him in England before he was transported. He was ďco-habitingĒ with a Jane Peters, and they had an illegitimate daughter, Matilda Jane, baptised at St Leonardís, Shoreditch in 1800 with the surname Ham. Jane appears in Poor Law Removal and Settlement Orders in January 1801 needing help as George had been transported, but the Overseers and Churchwardens in St Leonardís passed her back to the Parish of Old Windsor in Berks, where she had previously been employed as a nursery maid.
In 1828 Matilda is baptised again with the surname Peters in Thames Ditton, along with her two illegitimate children Richard and Emma. Their reputed father is George Danvers Jenkins, a gentleman, who marries Matilda in 1831, then they have two more children, Catherine and Robert. On George and Matildaís marriage record, her fatherís occupation is given as Watchmaker, which doesnít fit with the transportation records where heís described as a Labourer, but as Matilda had never met him, she probably didnít know much about him, and I gather that information about paternal occupations was quite often glamourised!!
Emma Jenkins carries on the family tradition by having two children with William Riley Stanford in 1848 and 1849, then marries him in 1856!
I have also seen on some other Trees that George Ham- (Iím not entirely certain itís the same one at the moment)-had a marriage in England to an Anne, and some children with her, before he was with Jane Peters.
