This orphan has been claimed by: Lynne Hoggett
Catherine Williams was sent to VDL on Sir Robt Seppings for larceny. She had a child, Thomas on board with her. A daughter, Elizabeth was born 1859. She was admitted to the Oprhan School in 1863 and again in 1870. She left on her 14th birthday to work for Charlotte Phillips in Orielton. On both admissions I have found, Elizabeth Williams/Smith's father was said to be Robert Smith, once deserted, once dead. No mention of his ship. He was born c 1820, as was Catherine. It seems CAtherine had her son with her, but was married with 3 children in England. Cannot find her son, if he lived or died.
