Francis formed a relationship with Mary Costelloe and had a son in Fingal on the 2/7/1855 his name was George Crow. They then had another son Charles Crow born 29/5/1857 at Table Cape. They then left Australia on the Gil Blas arriving in Auckland on 30/6/1859. Their next son William Francis Crowe was born in Auckland NZ on 28/8/1859. Mary also a convict had a daughter to a John Kenny on 25/3/1853 prior to her relationship with Francis. Her name was Elizabeth and she came to NZ with them. They changed their surname from Crow to Crowe on their vovage to NZ maybe to hide their convict past.
