Application to marry refused on 14 August 1840.  Application made by Rev. Edward Smith, Church of England minister for Queanbeyan.  Parish extended to Eden and into Victoria.  Application made to marry William Sadler who arrived on the Baring aged 42 years old.  Bridget was 35. Refusal based on the fact that Bridget had stated in her indentures that she was married with a child.  Does not appear that she married William Sadler.
