Amos was married to Elizabeth Ann Brown (1785-1827) on the 9/9/1810. After Amos had been transported Elizabeth travelled to NSW on the Lord Melville 1817 with her son, Amos, and a daughter.  Amos (convict) became involved in activities of dubious legality and was eventually forced to flee the country.  His famils is well documented in the Monaro Pioneers website.  He died on the 31/1/1881 at Windellama, Southern Tablelands.

Amos CRISP (convict) was the son of Amos CRISP, whose sister Susan married Philip VINCE.

Amos VINCE (a blacksmith in Wereham, Norfolk) was the son of Philip and Susan VINCE, and thus the cousin of the convict Amos CRISP.
