Jane Netherton was the youngest daughter of my 5x Great Grandmother, Jane Netherton (nee Lavers) (& (TBC) my 5x Great Grandfather, Samuel Netherton), who was transported from Devon, England to Australia in 1844, arriving on the 4th of July, 1845 on the Tory convict ship.
As Jane (snr) was a convict, I believe Jane (jnr) was taken from her care upon arrival in Australia, and placed into the Queen's Orphan School, where her short life would come to an end due to malnutrition. Her mother, Jane, later, with permissions, re-married a James Smith (free man) in 1849. The marriage certificate claims she was a Widow but it is believed her husband Samuel, was still alive at home in England.
