Phoebe (Phebe), had a young son James Hines (aka Richards) with her on the voyage. Banns of Marriage for Phoebe and James Richards, of Pritchett, Warwick, were read: (1) 21 April 1811 (2) (3) 5th May 1811.  Actual marriage record not found.  James Hines/Richards seems to have spent most of his years with his aunt Maria Hines (convict) and her husband John Hayward (convict).  James married more than once and had several children.  Phoebe managed to get a Ticket-of -Freedom 1829.  She re-offended a few times. Was known for drunkenness and brawling with neighbours, and due to an incident involving Phoebe, her ?husband (William Price) and a daughter Eliza Price, she stabbed a female neighbour (not badly) and ended up being sentenced to Moreton Bay secondary penal station for 3 years. archives.qld.gov.au After her release from Moreton Bay, no trace of her (or her two daughters) has yet been found.  See https://catharine.tribalpages.com
