Jane Vandebus was convicted at the Old Bailey on 02/09/1787 for receiving stolen property - clothing. Tried at the same time were James Everhard & her son John Vandebus for stealing a large quantity of clothing. Everhard was found not guilty, but John received a Death Sentence. Jane also received a Guilty verdict and to be transported for 14yrs.  Both Jane and her son John also went by the name ‘Bond’ - perhaps because she worked in Bond Street.
They may have a Dutch Jewish background.

Transported to New South Wales, Port Jackson, Australia on the ‘Lady Juliana’ of the 2nd Fleet. (Old Bailey transcript says transport to “Africa”)  Arrived Port Jackson 03/06/1790 after a voyage of 10 months.
