Edward Quin was an Irish Rebel and was probably transported for insurrection.  He was tried at Waterford in June 1800.

In the colony, Edward married Sarah Field (Convict, 1803, “Experiment”). They married April 1805 at Sydney.

1806 Muster:...
[Ref A3613 page 87] Edward Quin, Anne, Constable, 30 acres.
[Ref B0326 page 132] Edward Quinn, 30 acres, all pastured, 6 hogs, 6 bushels wheat, 2 bushels barley, not victualed, wife not victualed.
[Ref A1585 page 41] Sarah Field, Experiment, P.TL, with Edward Quin.
and in the ‘Marsden’ Women’s muster which was also listed..
[Ref C0435 page 132] Sarah Field, Experiment, Married, NSW, no children listed.

By 1814, things had further improved..
[Ref 4358 page 98] Edward Quin, Anne, Off Stores, Deputy Provost Marshall.

Edward died in 1820, he and Sarah appear to have had no children.
