Aboard "Brothers" with Jane BARTON was Elizabeth MOORE convicted of grand larceny and sentenced to 7 years transportation at Norfolk assizes on 30th April 1823.
Elizabeth married Jane’s son John BARTON in 1832 at Hobart.
No record found of Jane BARTON’s death but it would appear to be around 1845 when her husband John Snr. moved from Tasmania to Victor Harbor, Sth. Aust to join his son John who was now a whaler following several years as a publican in Hobart.
Jane BARTON was technically "at large" in the final years of her life having failed to attend muster in 1834 and reported as having absconded in 1841.
