Her occupations were listed as a plain cook, laundress and dairy maid. Further records state she was roman catholic, could not read nor write and her conduct was listed as very good.
on 21 February 1854 a request was made by Alice to marry another convict James King from Colchester England (DOB abt 1822). King was transported to Australia for burglary and stealing a looking glass(mirror). He arrived in Tasmania on the ship ‘Fairlie’ on 4 July 1852.
