I believe Catherine Jones (b) 1792 in Wales brought with her an infant also Catherine Jones (b) 1827.  I don’t know anymore about Catherine the mother but Catherine the child married a Phillip Culling in 1850 but he left Catherine and married another woman in Victoria, he was a convict also.
Catherine then made her life with another convict called William Head, their children were born in Hobart.  Later on they moved to N.S.W. in Woolloomooloo. Catherine died 2.5.1908, I think her mother died 25.8.1851 Hobart.

Catherine was tried at the same time as her sister, Elizabeth, for the same crime and they were sent away together on the ‘Sovereign’ on 14 July 1827 and arrived in Hobart on the 20th November 1827.

Catherine married another convict, Thomas Radcliffe on 17th Jan 1831.
