Sarah Wallace, Alias Wallis, Alias Whalley was sent to Van Diemens Land on the America in 1830.  Earlier records on Ancestry stated that she went on the Earl of Liverpool to NSW, but it then changed.  I have researched the records from Tasmania and they all state that she came out on the America.  She was from Stoke on Trent and was convicted at Stafford, England.  Can this be changed?  I have all the relevant records attached to my tree on Ancestry.  Her maiden name was Smith.
