At 34 was convicted in London of receiving stolen goods, sentenced to transportation for seven years and reached Sydney in the female transport Burrell in May. Next year John Williams twice applied for permission to marry Sarah but was refused because she was said to be already married with three children. By 1837 Sarah was assigned to him as a servant.
Sarah and John relocated to Brisbane, where they lived out the remainder of their lives.
