This orphan has been claimed by: sandra Hillyer (Campbell)

Agnes was born to convict mother Agnes Spright. Mum Agnes married William Hazelby in Tasmania and had at least 4 more children. William and Agnes moved between Tasmania and Victoria and even had a child in NSW. 3 of these children died as children. I have not been able to find what happened to young Agnes after her mother reclaimed her. There appear to be no records of her being married or a death. Both William and Agnes died in Victoria.
