Robert's Father & siblings are recorded in his convict indent which is now available online.
Both were born in Geelong. Annie was aged 19, dau of Catherine Keeleher and Michael Comer a Labourer,
William was a Farmer aged 31, son of Mary Beard and Robert Papworth, and they wed 2 Dec 1876 with the written consent of her father at St Saviours, Gordon in Victoria.
William's birth certificate shows him born at Duck Pond on 10 Sep 1853 and his birth was registered 16 Oct 1853 by his mother, who made a brave effort to sign her name.
