Old Bailey Online Transcripts; t1791091414-64:
SARAH WALDEN was indicted for feloniously stealing, on the 29th of August, two silver tea spoons, value 2 s. a check apron, value 1 s. a muslin handkerchief, value 1 s. an half shawl, a woollen petticoat, value 6 d. a linen shift, value 1 s. a cotton neckcloth, value 6 d. the goods of William Northover.
I am a housekeeper, the woman was my servant; I got up at six o’clock on the 29th of August, the first thing I missed was my watch, on Monday morning I had last seen it hang on the side of the mantle-piece in my bed-room, and all the articles in the indictment, besides many more; I recovered them again at the pawnbroker’s about three weeks after I lost them.
I am servant to a pawnbroker, on Saturday, the 10th of September, the prisoner pawned an apron and a muslin handkerchief; I knew her person; on Tuesday the 13th she pawned another apron.
I am a pawnbroker; the prisoner pawned a watch the 30th of August with me, and two silver spoons. (Produced.)
I am a pawnbroker’s servant; I produce a shift, a coloured apron, and a neckcloth, the apron and neckcloth were pawned the 26th of August, and the shift the 6th of September.
JOHN CARR sworn.
I am a relation of the prosecutor’s; Mrs. Northover sent for me, and I went to Bow-street, and saw the prisoner searched, and there was a petticoat and half shawl taken from her, (that was this day week,) and several duplicates, which led to these articles. (Produced.) Two applied to the things pawned at Allen’s, three to Garude’s, and one to Wilson’s.
Mrs. NORTHOVER sworn.
I can swear to the shawl, by some of the edge of the fringe worn off; I can swear to the flannel petticoat, for I pieced it.
Mr. Northover deposed to the watch.
I beg the mercy of the Court.
Transported for seven years.
Tried by the first Middlesex Jury before Mr. RECORDER.

In the colony, Sarah was assigned to Owen Martin (Convict, Queen, 1791) as a convict servant and was listed as appointed to him in “Governor Hunter’s Women Convict Assignment Report 1798” a return of convict women in the services of Officers or other households.
Owen and Sarah soon developed more than a working relationship. They had 4 children; Sarah 1795, Rosetta 1796, Thomas 1799 and Owen 1801.
It would seem that Sarah may have died around 1805. By the 1806 Muster, Owen is living with Catherine Osborne (Convict, Glatton, 1803), and they also have a family, 2 children, Mary and Patrick.

In the 1828 Census, both Owen and Sarah are deceased so of course are not recorded. However, several of the children are….
[Ref M2333] Rosetta Meurant, the daughter, married and with her husband Ferdinand (Convict, Minerva, 1800).
[Ref M1902] Martin, Thomas, 29, BC, married and with his wife Sarah (nèe Knowland) and 1 child.
[Ref V0022] Vardy, Mary, 22, the step daughter with her husband John Vardy and 4 children.
