It would seem that Sarah may had had a child, Sarah Thomas born around 1804-5, father John Thomas (no details).
However, at around the same time, April 1805, she married Edward Quin (Convict, 1801, “Anne”).
She is clearly identified in the 18096 muster..
[Ref A1585 page 41] Sarah Field, Experiment, P.TL, with Edward Quin.
and in the ‘Marsden’ Women’s muster which was also listed..
[Ref C0435 page 132] Sarah Field, Experiment, Married, NSW, no children listed.

Unfortunately, both Sarah and Edward died prior to the 1828 Census.

If indeed the child Sarah Thomas was born to sarah Field and John Thomas, the she is in fact the same Sarah Thomas who married John Thomas Bayliss on 12th August 1820 at Richmond and can be located on the 1828 census with him and their family.
John Thomas was the son of John Bayliss (NSW Corps, Third Fleet, 1791, “Active”) and Elizabeth Thomas (Convict, 1793, “Bellona”).
