25/7/1829 Manchester Courier and Lancashire General Advertiser Lancashire, England:
Emma Roberts, 18, John Ramsden, 20,  Mary Ann Ramsden, 22, Ann Crowther, 21, and Eliza Ogden, were indicted for stealing a purse containing forty shillings, from the person of George Clayton.
The indictment contained a variety of counts in which the different prisoners were charged, some with stealing the property, others with receiving it, and others with “aiding and abetting, receiving, harbouring, and maintaining” those who committed the robbery…..
The Jury found all the prisoners guilty, and after an impressive address from the Chairman, they were each sentenced to fourteen years’ transportation.

**Emma Roberts, Ann Crowther, and Mary Ann Ramsden (Listed on our records as RUNSDEN) were all onboard ‘Roslin Castle 1830’ and John Ramsden arrived NSW per Dunvegan Castle 1830.**

2/11/1831: Eliza Ogden, aged 19, condition: Bond - Permission to marry - George Gallimore (Dick 1821), aged 30; free.

1831: Married at Abercrombie District, Bathurst. No children listed.

1845: There is a death listed for Eliza Gallimore - Infant - however as George Gallimore remarried on 26/2/1846, this could be the above Eliza.
