In the colony, Daniel married Eleanor Gott (Second Fleet Convict, Neptune, 1790).
Eleanor had previously lived with Joseph Wright (First Fleet Convict, Scarborough, 1788) and had 7 children in that relationship. Joseph had died in 1811 and during 1812, Eleanor and Daniel married.
They had no children of their own.

## No details known of George. But in the census he is aknowledged as a member of the family!

## Further Info on George.  He was transported in 1823 aboard “Guildford” (Not “Surry”).  He was born in 1821 the son of John Buckridge at Shoreditch, Middlesex. It would seem probable that in fact he was a nephew of Daniel.
