Francis GARLAND was one of six men (including John LEARY, Joseph MORLEY and Henry ROACH) who committed a highway robbery stealing twelve yards of muslin and other goods valued at £5.13s., for which they were sentenced to death at Winchester, Hants, on 3 March 1783. GARLAND, reprieved to seven years transportation on 21 April, was sent to a Thames hulk and thence, with MORLEY and ROACH, to the Mercury transport on 26 March 1784. GARLAND escaped after a mutiny on board and was recaptured at Plymouth Dock [Devonport] with William ROBINSON (q.v.) and William CASEY and lodged in an Exeter goal (probably the Bridewell, his name not on the Devon Gaol Calendar). Tried by the Special Commission on—May, GARLAND was sentenced to death again and was not reprieved until 9 August. He was sent to the Dunkirk hulk, aged 23, at the end of the month. His behaviour was “troublesome at times” until embarked on Charlotte on 11 March 1787.
GARLAND’s first and seemingly only record after landing at Port Jackson in 1788 was his marriage on 24 December 1791 to Sarah BARTLAM (Mary Ann 1791). No record of his death has been found. In 1806 Sarah “BARTLUM” was a housekeeper to John BAYLEY, in 1814 as Sarah BARTLETT she was living with Abraham KEMP (Barwell 1798) and in 1828 a servant to George HALL at Pitt Town. GARLAND was either dead before 1806 or left the colony without his wife. She died as BARTLAM on 2 January 1848.”
