William Garner was assigned to either Airds or Bringelly, and was also at Liverpool, Concord and Brickfield Hill. He worked as a brickmaker and married Catherine Bird (per"Lady Rowena" 1826) at the old St Mary’s Catholic Church Sydney in 1830.

They later moved to East Maitland and were the parents of eight children. They were my great-great-grandparents.
