So the Sarah who married George SMITH in 1818 was NOT the Sarah who was transported under the sentence of Life.  The Sarah who married George SMITH in 1818 was a widow with young children.

....
She was convicted at The Old Bailey on the 2/12/1812, and transported on the Broxbornebury ....  I have not been able to find where Sarah Smith was between 1812 (her conviction)  and 1814 (her arrival in Sydney). 

So you are looking for Sarah 2 December 1812 to 22 February 1814...
....  She was transported to Port Jackson (Sydney New South Wales) per the Broxbornebury which sailed 22 February 1814, arriving 28 July 1814

Old Bailey ... so you are looking for where the female convicts sentenced to transportation beyond the seas were held prior to their actual transportation... Old Bailey ... London Central Criminal Court...

fingers crossed this may help  :)

Thanks to everyone for your reply, Yes I must be stupid to try and research Sarah Smith
I think I can remember reading something a while ago in Trove that she did not turn up for the convict muster, oh just noticed Jamjar beat me to it.  I never noticed her TOL was cancelled.
I wonder who this Sarah Blades is that is mentioned in the Colonial Sec. Papers of Sarah Blades came free on the Broxbornebury? so these are 2 different people?
To go a step further I am trying to find if this Sarah Smith is the one that married a Thomas Weavers? in 1833
