Bartholomew
On the evening of the day they escaped, 9 September 1849, they broke into a farm house at Whitemarsh, ‘in the Pittwater District’, whilst Bartholomew Reardon and his family were having dinner. Reardon had been born on Norfolk Island and had come to Tasmania in 1807, at one time he had been a constable at Pittwater. His wife, Elizabeth, was the local midwife and a somewhat formidable woman. Armed with three axes and a bludgeon they demanded rations 'two menaced the family with axes' whilst the others ransacked the house. They exchanged their convict uniforms for 'Mr. Bartholomew's best attire' and according to the Courier destroyed 'nearly all the female dresses and bonnets etc.' taking a gun, a watch, a knife and three loaves of bread, tea , sugar and meat the party took off into the bush. The farmer raised the alarm and a party of seven eventually captured them nine days later in a bush hut on the banks of the Carlton River. After an all too brief period at large they found themselves in the Sorell Gaol.

From on Mon, 5 Nov 2007
I notice on your website you have James Birchall married to Sarah Reardon. Sarah's father is Bartholomew Reardon married to Elizabeth Nash, who was the son of Bartholomew Reardon 1st Fleeter. Bartholomew Reardon 1st Fleeter died on Norfolk Island. He was married to Hannah Rowney 2nd Fleeter.
My husband's mother Jean Geeves (nee Cox) placed a plaque on Norfolk Island in memory of Bartholomew Reardon 1st Fleeter. Jean and I attended a Dedication service on Norfolk Island in Mar 2001, the reason I know Batholomew is buried there and never set foot in Tasmania.
