Dear Elizabeth,
I found your website when browsing and found my husbands great grandparents on it.
They were:
William Jessup and Mary Ann Richards(on), their daughter Minnie was my husbands grandmother.
William was an "exile" who arrived in Melbourne on 15/01/1848 on the ship "Marion". He was sentenced at Pentonville for stealing a ladies shawl. He was a Wheelwright and Carpenter to trade.
Mary Ann Richards as far as we know was born in Sydney in 1833/1835, mother Mary Ann Richard, father unknown.
Regards.
