This orphan has been claimed by: Anne Atkinson

My great great grand father Worthy Barnes married Dorothy (Dorothea) Ann Little,Richard's mother . I was interested in what happened to the children who were transported with her . I don't know if you realise that Richard  Stewart was a brother to Caroline Little .He used his fathers name .As well as Lucinda who died in 1850 in Hobart ther was a Mary Ann who at this point I cannot find . Dorothy and Worthy married in 1853 and had two sons in Hobart   William ( my great grand father ) and Isaac . When pardoned they moved to Victoria and had another son George born at Mount Doran near Ballarat. . Any more information would be greatly  appreciated
