In the colony, Catherine married? Owen Martin (Convict, Queen, 1791) about 1805.
Owen had previously had a relationship and already had 4 children. Sarah Warport (Convict, Kitty, 1792) had been assigned as a servant to Owen and they had a de facto relationship which lasted to about 1803/4.
Sarah and Owen had 4 children: Sarah 1795, Rosetta 1796, Thomas 1799 and Owen 1801.
