Catherine Buckley was one of 8 women without children having the Governor’s Permission to embark on board HMS Glatton in April 1803 as the partner of one of the reduced soldiers of the NSW Corps returning to England. It has not been determined which soldier was her partner.

One week after arrival Catherine married free settler, Thomas Webb(who had also just arrived on Bellona) in St Phillip’s Church of England, Sydney. It is not known if the marriage was a genuine one as Thomas was slain on the banks of the Hawkesbury River by natives on 19 May 1795, whilst Catherine was discovered having bought a pair of stolen shoes in 1794, and was sent to Norfolk Island, arriving on Daedalus 4 Oct 1794, where she remained till returning to Port Jackson in July 1798 by Reliance.
During this time or perhaps shortly afterward, Catherine formed a relationship with a soldier of the NSW Corps and was allowed to return with him to England by HMS Glatton in May 1803
