From Cumbria Archive Centre (Carlisle) - A copy of Jane’s Cumberland Quarter Sessions…
It appears that Jannett Gardiner of Saint Bees, wife of William Gardiner, appeared in the Easter Quarter Sessions of 1801 for petty larceny. She was found guilty of stealing a web of silk handkerchiefs, the property of Mr Peter Dixon, and sentenced to transportation for 7 years.

Jane had several Liaisons on the way to the colony and within the colony.
On board the ‘Glatton’, she had a short relationship with John Kellock, a marine gunner. This resulted in the birth of a son, John Kellick, born 1803.
She then was with William Cocket, an able seaman who had arrived on the ‘Fishburn’ in 1788. They had at least 1 child, James Cocket, born 1805.

By December 1808, Jane was with George Coulson (Convict, ‘Hillsborough’, 1799). Thay woupld appear to have been together for a longer period. There are 4 daughters and one son to this union.
Elizabeth 1809, Mary 1810, Jane 1813, George 1815 and Isabella 1818.
The 1814 population muster records Jane as Jane Gardener, wife to G. Colston.
Jane died 4th May 1818 and was buried 6th May at the old Sydney Burial ground.
