Rachel Turner was transported from England, around the age of 26, after stealing a silk scarf from her master. Turner was one of the first people to be defended in court- she was defended by a Mr Garrow, who claimed she had not stolen the scarf, but it was in fact, given to her by her master who cheated on his wife to be with her. Despite witnesses, Rachel Turner was given 7 years transportation to Australia. There, she was assigned to Surgeon John White, to whom she had a child with (Andrew Douglass Keble White). John White was then recalled to England and soon after, Turner married Mr Thomas Moore, a colonial carpenter who later became a magistrate for Sydney Town. They became one of the wealthiest couples in the town.
