The information previously provided regarding Isabella Buckley’s husband, George Hodgetts, is incorrect. George Hodgetts was born in England in 1804. In March 1821 he was convicted for life for sheep stealing and transported to Van Diemen’s Land on the Phoenix convict ship. In January 1860 Hodgetts abandoned Isabella and his children. An attempt was made to place Isabella’s children into the Queens Orphan School and the documentation confirming George Hodgetts’ convict details is stated on the admission documentation.
