Agnes meet William Goodger from the UK and convict for 14 years which in those days was 14 years.  William and Agnes had two children, William who eventually became Mayor of Ulmarra and also had a street named after him. Agnes at this stage of my searching is practically unknown except for the fact that she cam from the Lancaster area in the UK. They were married in the Parish of Morpeth H Rusden Chaplan on August 14, 1838. The ceremony was also attended Mr & Mrs Skelton of Morpeth and witnessed the marriage certificate.
