Philippa’s maiden name was Barter. She was married to Stephen Carbis in Devon, England had several children and was pregnant when she was convicted and sentenced to be sent to Australia. The Baby was born while Philippa was awaiting transportation and the baby was named Stephen Carbis and baptised once they arrived in New South Wales in 1838. Philippa became the head nurse of the Benevolent Asylum in Sydney, some articles are published on trove relating to her employment at the Asylum during the 1840’s. Philippa married Joshua Hutchinson in 1848, Joshua being a bachelor and Philippa a widow. Philipa gave birth to a daughter Sabina Hutchinson in 1843 but the baby died in the same year. Stephen Carbis was formally known as Stephen Hutchinson, married under the surname Hutchinson and passed the name on to his children. Joshua Hutchinson owned many pubs in Sydney.
