## Only mention located in 1800-1802 Muster:
[Ref AA141 page 7] Thomas Harrison, 3 pigs, 2 sheep, 1 goat, 8 acres wheat, 4 acres maize to be planted. On stores, Woman on Stores, 1 child on stores. Rents a farm at Prospect.

The woman would be his wife Mary (no details) and the child would be their daughter Sarah, born 27th December 1798.

No further mention located in Muster records.

IN later life, Sarah married Robert Taylor (Convict, 1814, “Somersetshire”) in 1815. These two and their family are recorded in the 1828 Census.
